Any advice or hints on how to remove the old & install a new stock lift pump on a 04? Does it have to come out from under the truck? It's tight enough just getting my hands in there to change the fuel filter, how do I get at the pump behind it?

I remember one time I had to get at something on my 01 behind the fuel filter can and I removed two 10mm bolts at the top of the fuel filter and there was enough play in fuel line to push it aside, is that possible on the 04, so I can get at the pump?

I jacked up the driver's side and put a jack stand under the frame and I was able to get at the pump. It is a long reach. It uses hex head machine screws to hold it in and there is an o-ring too.

You should be able to come from under the hood that's how I did it the outside two are pretty easy the inside are a little difficult.

The top side is the less painful way, only probably is finding a comfy way to lie across the motor. It uses 5mm hex machine bolts to hold it on, and the hose all the way to the frame rail comes out with it.

Remove the fender liner and it is easy to reach over the wheel. The liner is easy to remove.
