Fuel Pump Question

Yeah well it is not the fuel pump but it might as well be. It is the fuel sending unit that went out. It is attached to the fuel pump as one unit. From what I have read they say to take off the gas tank and go at it that way but today a older guy told me it would be a lot easier to take off the bed of the truck so that you could work from the top of the tank. Made sense. Just wanted a second oppinion. Any thoughts?

Yup, but another alternative is to remove all the bed bolts, lift it up slightly and place some pieces of wood 4x4s between the bed and the frame rails so that you have more room to work from underneath. This way you wouldn't have to disconnect as much stuff (wires and filler hoses) and you'd have room enough to work without having to drop the tank. However dropping the tank isn't that hard, especially the rear tank (if ya have the dual tanks like I do) just make sure that it's nearly empty or it'll be very heavy and awkward under the truck!
