You have a short to ground or the pump is starting to go bad. You can run a seperate wire from the hot side of the fuse to your pump to see if it is the pump or if you use an ohm meter to check the wire and the pump. Get's a little technical though.

Fuel pump keeps blowing fuses

The fuse is designed to protect your wires from melting due to current overload. faulty fuel pumps may use more power before failure, so Cody change your fuel pump and filter, the result will amaze you

Somewhere you have a ground fault in the wiring system. Sometimes if the O-ring on the fuel pump assembly is bad it allows a improper ground. Be sure to also check the fuse box wiring to assure that all grounds are tight. Some fuse boxes have multiple grounds.

Thinking I may have a bad fuel pump fuse. Truck died a whole bunch of idiot lights came on now hard to start and keep running could a fuse be the problem? or is it the filter?. Pump is fine. Gas is good...

It wouldn't be the fuse. The fuel filter would be the best bet, especially if it has been changed for a while. Should be changed every 12,000-20,000 miles.
