Fuel pump replacement on 2003 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD

My 2003 2500HD 6.0L Gas engine truck died while I was driving it on Friday. It was towed to a shop and the mechanic told me it was the fuel pump and it would be $800 to replace. I bought the part myself, dropped and drained the tank and replaced the pump assembly. I put about 6 gals of gas back in it, but it will not start. I removed and emptied the in-line filter and replaced it. Still no luck. Am I missing something? What else do I need to do to get this thig started again?

make sure when you unplugged the fuel pump it didnt pop the fuse.

The fuel pump may fail causing the engine to stall and not restart. Our technicians recommend replacing the fuel filter every 30,000 miles to help prevent undue strain on the fuel pump.
