    Not in my opinion. I changed mine to a Walbro 255 by dropping the tank while on jackstands. I didn't have room to remove and store the bed.

    It was easier to drop the tank, and do all the Maintenance and changes and stick it back in.

    Just make sure to run it down to nearly empty before dropping the tank. It's not that bad of a job. 1 hour and your done. Unless you find other things you need to do.

    since your fuel pump is not in the tank, you don't need to drop the tank, just mount it to the upright bed support near the fuel filter mount. See the blogs about the fuel pump install - the truck he is doing is a 1st gen, but the frame is very similar.
