GMC and CHEVY truck easy fuel pump fix - make a hatch
I was on my way to the dump one day and my fuel pump went out. Frustrating... This is my aircraft mechanic way of fixing my fuel pump. Airplanes have lots of hatches. You don't have to take the wings off an airplane to get to the fuel pump. Some people don't like the idea of cutting a small square in their bed and that's ok. But I see people modifying their trucks all the time for purely cosmetic reasons and some of those mods actually make their trucks less useful so I don't think a purely practical modification is out of line. On these GM trucks you can scoot the bed back or drop the tank to get to the fuel pump. Or just make a hatch. Rivet on some tabs and put the piece you sawed out back on with some sealant. If you have a bed liner nobody will know but you. Shoot, chrome the hatch and be proud of it. Now if your $60 ebay fuel pump goes out again it's a 15 minute fix instead of a 4 hour dirty tank drop. And no need for the $400 OEM pump because you're scared to go through the hassle of dropping the tank again. When I took the pump out it was actually just the flex hose that takes the fuel from the pump to the top of the tank that had cracked. But that OEM pump was always very noisy so I chucked it and went with the cheapest pump on ebay which is still going strong after a couple years and is completely quiet. This is a 98 GMC Z71 extended cab 3 door 4x4 but this will work for a lot of trucks.
