Question about 1995 Chevrolet C1500
I need to replace fuel pump.
The fuel tank must be removed from the vehicle to replace pump or lift the box from the frame. If you remove the tank it is held up with two tank straps and the lines must be unhooked as you lower it. good luck unless you have access to a lift.

If you have access to sheet metal tools, and a MIG welder, there is an alternative to removing the tank.
Using a 1/16th inch thick cuttoff blade on a handheld 4" grinder, carefully cut a square hole in the bed above the fuel pump. Use caution when cutting so that you don't go too deep, and cut into the lines beneath the bed. But there is almost two inches of clearance. So if you keep the blade depth at just barely through the sheet metal of the bed, you should be ok. Also, a good precaution is to slide a small piece of sheet metal in above the tank, between the tank, and bed before you start cutting to shield things in case you screw up, and go too deep.
Use the square piece metal that you remove, and a short piece of piano hinge, to make an access door in the bed of the truck.
