Question about 2001 Chevrolet Tahoe
The easiest way is to get someone else to do it, like Tom Sawyer & Huckleberry Finn- just kidding.
I had a junk old truck with a rusted out bed that I cut a hole into to access the fuel pump & then attached a home-made 'lid' onto my 'new' fuel pump access panel opening. I hardly used it except to haul debris or dirt or pull a stump every once in a while, so pretty wasn't my focus on this project. If you don't want to cut a hole in your bed then you'll have to drop the tank- not fun! Only you can decide if this solution suits you.

The fuel filter is located on the left (drivers side) frame rail.It will either have two flare nut fittings,or a flare nut on one side and quick disconnect fitting on the other. With the engine off and key out of the ignition switch,remove the fuel cap to relieve any pressure in the fuel system.Use a couple of wrenches to remove the flare nuts or use your fingers to depress the little white tabs on the quick disconnect flange.You will lose a little fuel,so have a container such as a oil drain pan to catch the fuel.After the new filter is installed,put the key into the ignition and turn to the on position without starting the engine.You should hear the fuel pump pressurize the fuel system.Perform this step at least twice,then start the engine and check for leaks. Good luck.

Mandatory? Well it is a bit less messy but any way you do it there will be fuel going somewhere besides down the engine.
Find the fuel test port and depress the Shrader valve and beware of spraying fuel. Shrader valve is the little pin in the center of the test port which should have a cap on it to keep dirt out, looks the same as the valve in your tire valve stem, cuz it is. Test port should be under the hood near the fuel rail, that would be the tube that feeds the injectors and looks like the filler port for an air conditioner, old style that is, not the new R134A ones but the old R12 ones that used 1/4 tube fittings.
Best to do this after the vehicle has not been running for a while, that way it might bleed off any excess pressure before you start taking the lines loose from the filter.
Remember, gasoline is very flammable so no smoking or open flames!
