Carter or Bosch Fuel Pumps?
Fuel pump replacement is a tough job on these trucks go'n cheap is really not an option for this item.
I have heard good feedback on the Delphi and Denso though..
These four brands are the only decent brands that sell the entire assembly the rest are garbage.
Me personally, I converted mine to an external pump. (Easy off-road swap.)
To do the conversion I bought a new complete Bosch assy, removed the pump and replace it with a screen pick-up tube and got an Edelbrock air cooled external pump with the appropriate pressure rating.
A lot of guys cut a hole in the floor pan to gain trail access to the top of the tank. In tank pumps are for street cars not trail trucks, in my opinion.
Most daily drivers that are bone stock are gonna want the entire assembly not just the pump. By the time the factory pump fails they are rusted out and unserviceable unless you get the entire unit.
