Even I can change it out! A socket wrench and a little time. That's all!

I've taken the bed off, seems easier and less debris falls into your eyes. Be sure to replace all the gaskets that se

Do it yourself.THey are not that hard to put on.Just drop the fuel tank and it comes out of the top,very easy to take in and out.Sounds like a big job,but it really isn't.


Absolutely do it yourself! Just takes a little time, not hard at all.

I had a fuel pump go out and I slaped an elect one on for a quick fix. FYI they are universal ones that you can get. Of course it was in the middle of a race and needed it done in a hour \:\)

DONT buy one from auto zone,advance etc - yay they are cheaper initially and have lifetime warranty but you get what you pay for in electrical parts. New GM pump for my Suburban was about $400 with a new fuel filter & tax - mine had 142k on it when it went out.and

Most of the cost is probably in labor. I had the starter replaced in my truck about a month ago and the repair shop charged $75 per hour, dealer was charging $100 per hour.

My son had to replace the fuel pump in a 97 Blazer last year. I most watched as he and his friend did most of the work. It was time consuming watching them drop the tank. Hard part was lifting the tank and attaching it. Floor jack & ply wood (lifting the tank), 8' 2x4's and bricks(leverage and holding the tank up) made the job a lot easier.
