What is the simplest way to relocation the fuel pump? Has anyone done it and any photos of the procedure? I have actually done some cars prior to yet the tank on the truck is alot various and also I dont desire to damage any kind of lines or wires dropping it. Thanks for all your aid and also input.
I"ve constantly uncovered it a lot much easier and quicker to slide the bed ago. It"s nowbelow as heavy as you"d think.Take out the 6 bolts that host it dvery own. The 3 inside the gas cap door, the license plate mount, and also unplug the tail lights.You"ll have to borrow 2 friends bereason of your case. Wrap a towel around the ends of your bumper to protect the paint. Each person grabs it by the wheel well and lifts it up and walks it ago about to the edge of the wheel well.
