Good evening,

It needs to be a pump that is regulated to 50 lbs. That is what your truck requires.

Why not replace the pump in the tank?

A pump from rock auto is $48.00.

Go to there web site. Put in your truck and go to the fuel pump. They usually deliver the next day.

I attached the picture of the pump for you.

I assume so since you asked for it. Did you determine it was failed?

Is it possible that the filter for the fuel is bad? And it shows the same symptoms of a bad fuel pump.

No. There is a bypass in the filter.
