Have the fuel tank be as empty as possible and don't jack up the vehicle. I replaced mine some years back with 1/2 a tank of gas and it sucked. Just use a jack to support the tank and lower it down all together.

The hard part is lowering the gas tank. The fuel pump isn't a cheap item

Follow the instruction on this link: DailyDrivenTJ-Fuel Pump Repair I did it 4 months ago. It is really easy.
