NO dont drop tank, you will be sorry, take bed off, only like 6 or 8 bolts, and you will have more room to work, and its a pain in the *** to undo the lines and drop the tank, you cant get in there to do it, but just basic tools nothing special, be sure and try not to make any sparks while takein off that ring to get the pump out, and put an ac delco pump on there

My fuel gauge on my 1993 GMC Sierra just went bonkers (way past full) and I am getting no fuel to the throttle body. Is my fuel pump bad?

Yes, the fuel pump could be bad, but the sending unit and gauge should be replaced at the same time necessitating taking the gas tank down.

How to replace fuel pump on 2001 gmc pickup 3/4

the fuel pump is inside the fuel tank. some techs just lower the fuel tank down, others remove the bed. personaly dropping the tank is harder, but lifting off the bed requires about 4 strong people.

Replace fuel pump 2002 GMC Sierra

I don't think there is enought slack to drop the tank without unhooking the lines. You can take this advise if you want or not its up to you, but i always found it easier to unbolt the bed and lift it back about a foot and i could get right at the sender where the pump is and in some cases i dident even have to unhook the fuel lines, pull the sending unit out chg. the pump and put it back together. Or you can do it the other way, unhook the lines, electrical wires, filler hose, and straps, if its got gas in it better have some help 8# a gal. adds up.

Need to replace the fuel sending in a 01 gmc sierra 2500 hd extended cab step by step

the fuel tank will need to be removed. Put truck on jack stands..disconnect battery...loosen straps holding tank and lower enough to disconnconnect fuel lines and wiring will need a special tool to disconnect the fuel lines....the sending unit and fuel pump assembly is held in by a big lock ring....rotate the ring and it will then lift off...remove the pump/sender assy....remember to replace the fuel pump strainer...this would be alot easier with pictures to show would suggest buying a book at like autozone..
