Fuel Pump Replacement 05 V6

So I am driving home from work in snow covered ice and more snow falling; the engine dies and won't start back up...Couldn't be anything serious, engine and all was very strong beforehand (65k miles). A bottle of Heet later, no progress. Finally started back up (started immediately) by pounding on fuel tank while cranking. I drive 1 block and engine dies, same problem, this time pounding doesn't work. Diagnosis is failed pump. Aftermarket pump cost is ~$550, OEM is ~$750. Has anyone replaced this type of in-tank pump? Is it reasonable to DYI or better off taking to the dealership? Thanks.

It happen to me two times in my S10 pickup. Just died. You can replace it yourself. The hard part for me was removing the hose and vent hose in the filler neck part. Get a manual and follow the steps.

I did mine, i STRONGLY suggest you pull the bed off, and not drop the tank.

also, you can get a fuel pump from URD for about $100- $150 and they are better than stock.

Is there a sticky with pics and procedures to removing the bed? I bought a shop manual advising to drop the tank (no procedure for bed removal). If its easier to remove the bed (and camper shell) than drop the tank, I will do it that way...Especially if the URD pump I ordered installs easier by removing the bed. Any thoughts? Thanks.

For just about any in-the-tank fuel pump it is easier to pull the bed than drop the tank. I had to swap the fuel pump in my '92 F-150 after 200k miles. I tried the tank-drop method first, but later found much quicker success with pulling the bed. Just make sure you either A) have a second vehicle for parts you forgot, B) have everything you think you might need while your under there.

Thanks for all of your replies...I will try to post pics and procedures once I receive the parts and warm up the garage! I will also keep an eye on this sticky for any other great input.

I read that there was a voluntary recall on these fuel pumps for the V6... I'm looking into why mine will crank but won't start in my sub zero weather(with a brand new battery).. who can i blame??
