Is this the way to go? 1st gen ranger fuel pump

ok so I was wondering if in a 1986 Ranger you can pull the bed to access the fuel pump? I don't feel like dropping the tank because I filled up recently and I'd have to drain it and I thought pulling the bed would just be easier

IMO removing the bed is much easier than dropping the tank.

if you can get the bed bolts out, then by all means pull the bed. i just did mine, 6 bolts, the fuel filler connection, and pull the plug on the wiring for the lights on the box. i didnt even take the cap off. had access to a tractor with a loader and forks on the bucket, couple of boards under the rails and up and off. i didnt want to pull my tank either. this project actually started with replacing the front spring hangers. i had all the bedd bolts out but the rear and had tilted the box back like a dump truck and worked underneath. i must have disturbed the rusty fuel fittings on the sender/pump/pickup assy. had a major fuel leak afterwards.
