Hello, My name is Randall. I will do my best to assist you.
I need to know if your gas tank is at rear of truck or behind rear axle OR along the side of the truck say running along side the frame?
Ok obviously this job is much easier up on a lift and using a trans jack to lower tank. If you have fule in the tank, it will be heavy and have to use a drain machine to draw gas from tank. If you can drain the tank, it will be heavy and if on the ground will need to use floor jacks.
You will also need the fuel line diconnect tool. Its a small special tool for removing the lines from top of tank. Most all parts stores sell the tool
Once tank is out, you undo the ring at top of pump and slide pump out of the tank

diconnect NEG side of battery. Go to the fule injector rail on the engine. Look for the fule pressure test port as shown below. It should still have a cap on it like a valve stem on a tire. Depres the pintle inside and fule pressure will be released. have a rag around it to help keep clean

I was hoping for a list of things to look out for. As you are well aware very few jobs go according to the book. Most will have minor snafus that only experience will prepare you for. So I followed the instructions that came with the pump and all went mostly ok. The old pump did not release by squeezing the tabs. But after fighting with it for a while, I reached alongside and popped the tabs loose by working on the bottom of the tabs. That is the type of snafus I would have liked to have been ready for from jump street.
Thanks and a Happy New Year, Mike
