I was just looking at them on rockauto's website the other day when I took mine apart. Not sure about the quality, just that they have tanks and fuel pumps. A Be cautious that a lot of online parts disributers aren't that friendly with returns.

Thanks so much FlintJunkie! I wouldn't call that long winded, I would call that very helpful !!!
I do have a question now : The part on Amazon, that you gave me the link to, says the fuel pump assembly is for Japan built models. Mine is an American built model (according to the first character of the VIN : "l"). I ran into that a lot looking around for that part online. Do you know why that would make a difference? The only model I found so far, that is supposedly for my American built, is very expensive. Hopefully I am just looking in the wrong places, lol.

Danacat12 did you look at the part I posted earlier? It’s an OEM part for your American built truck. It’s actually cheaper than the fuel pump assembly I installed on my son’s truck last year. https://btsautoparts.com/products/17...l-pump-new-oem

I guessed I missed the local made part..
I'm not sure of the fitment..
But I can't see the replacement procedure being different..

alabama_lowlife, thanks for posting that part. You're right, somehow I missed your first posting. But checking into it, it looks like a similar type site, but not the exact same, that I tried to buy a new seat cushion from in December. I got burned and had to go through Paypal's dispute process to get my money back. I don't believe the parts that site claimed to sell actually existed. This one looks too good to be true, especially since they have only one. It would be extremely tempting, but I don't want to get scammed again.

you can use almost any common fuel pump. they are $20 off ebay all day long.

even walbro knock offs that have always worked fine for me.
dropping the tank is super easy.
or...just cut a hole in the bed to get to the top fuel tank....

I would say this lady is already pretty smart coming to Infamous Nissan to learn about her truck. There is some good info here and the people aren't afraid to jump in and help. I replaced my tank with a new one, not sure where they got the tank, but it wasn't cheap. The way to replace the pump as told here is correct, you can lean the bed or remove the whole thing for access.
