Question about 2001 GMC Yukon XL
There is no access other than dropping the fuel tank. On a pickup you can raise the bed but this is not an option for you. It is not a huge deal to drop the tank, however it is difficult to reinstal the lock ring while putting the new pump in.

Many of the Pontiacs of that era up to even present models had an access panel in the trunk that you could access through the back seat pass through.
Its been a while since I seen the inside of a Firebird, but in thinking about it the back seat pass through may not be present on the Firebird, but it may be worth the time to lift up the carpeting in the trunk area and see if there is an access panel to the fuel pump.

Yes, get a torch and burn a very large diameter hole through the trunk area and down into the gas tank. If you are still alive after the explosion, the pump will be right there and you can change it.
