    Welcome to TW! :)

    Fuel pump isnt hard. Its in the tank, so either drop the tank, or remove the bed.

    Depends on how low to the ground the truck is, and how much fuel is in the tank. 6 bolts, un plug the rear light wire harnesses, and disco the fuel filler, and lift off the bed, and your done. "course, Im one who kinda likes tearing things apart.....:eek:

    I really want to take the bed off just to say that I did, but it is a OH truck and the nuts are to rusty to chance it! Do you guys know if the fuel filter, sending unit, and pump come together in a package deal? and what is a good place to get one? The toy dealer wanted $700 to replace it:eek:

    i'd go with taking the bed off, My tank is on the ground right now for a fuel pump, not hard to take it out but much more work than taking the bed off.
    I've found partstrain.com has some good prices.
