Hi,

I am looking for the 1998.5+ Dodge in-tank fuel pump retrofit install instructions. I would like to get these instructions in order to remove the kit from my truck. Thanks !

I believe you just leave it in place an disconnect electricity and add whatever draw straw or sump you are going to use with aftermarket pump on frame.

A drawstraw replaces the original pump. You could leave it if you install a sump pickup on the bottom of your tank. While I have no valid argument, I just don’t like the idea of having a fitting and fuel line from the bottom of the tank.
It’s actually illegal with gas tanks, but legal for diesels.

I don’t understand the problem... you just take it out. Access is by either unbolting and lifting the bed or dropping the tank.
Dropping the tank is so easy I don’t know why people hesitate, it’s just a piece of plastic.

Buy a Draw Straw V (5) kit and install it into the in tank pump module. There are no 1/4 tank issues at all with a Draw Straw V kit. Buy one of the external fuel pumps numerous vendors sell and attach it to the frame rail in front of the fuel tank.

I recommend a mechanical fuel boss pump over an electric...but Fass if you decide to stay electric.

Thanks for the info, any one know which wires are powering the in tank pump ? So I can splice them and bring them back to the front of the truck. But the point for my original question is that i would like to remove the additional harness that came with the retrofit kit and use the factory wiring to run the new pump thus avoiding splicing and a cleaner install.

When installing the Draw Straw V kit you simply disconnect a couple wires in the in-tank pump module, remove the existing pump and install the draw straw suction tube in its place, there is no splicing of wires required. The external fuel pump that you need to buy to replace the existing pump that was in the in-tank module will come with its own wiring harness. The new wiring harness connects to a lead at the ECM and a power and ground connection. Route the new harness to the new pump and plug it in.
This is the install procedure for the Raptor pump I have.

This pump and Draw Straw V from Genos Garage would work just fine for you.
