Failed twice, ok now and has been 4 years. Last time it failed in traffic, so I got out and bangeded on bottom of fuel tank with my fist. I could hear it whirring afterward and it worked ok for another month after which this happened again and I had to have it replaced.
Sometimes it will crank and maybe the next time it won't. Maybe can drive 1 day and next day will not start. Have changed fuel pump, filter, module and some other things and it is still the same. Sometimes it will start and sometimes it won't. Go figure?

Over the course of owning this truck,I have replaced the fuel pump 4 or 5 times.(I've lost count)As well I have changed out the fuel filter more times than I remember.The easiest way I have found to change out the fuel pump is to remove the bed off the pick-up truck. Then,access to the fuel pump on top of the gas tank is easy.Six bolt,a ground cable,a few electrical connectors,and three screws in the gas inlet and the bed is ready for removal.
