Replaced my fuel pump at 103,000 miles as preventive maintenance, since I am a technician myself, I knew it would fail sooner rather than later.

We've had our truck almost 3 years, my brother in law owned it before in the last 5 years we've replaced the fuel pump 4 times (fixing to be 5) the last 3 was bc it would not crank. It would try but never catch on. My brother in law changed it his self. It wasn't cheap and he had to remove the bed of the truck to get to it! (The last time we cut a hole in the bed of the truck to access it easier) now we are having to replace it again bc the gas had stays on full even when empty. We have to calculate miles, I was told the first time it was replaced this was the same reason. Hopefully it's still under warranty, and it's the last time. This is ridiculous and very expensive!!! Please call for a recall?!?!
