Question Replacing Factory Fuel Pump??

I am looking in to replacing the factory fuel pump located inside the frame under the drivers side. and I was just wondering if I should go back to the factory pump or do they make an aftermarket pump that would take it's place ie.. Fass, Airdog, Raptor. etc.. I am not that knowledgeable in mechanics. I have a mechanic who checked it out and said it is very weak and needs to be replaced in the near future. So i am just looking for the best route to go for.

Any info is great info.. Thanks,

Keith

You can go with Air Dogg, or Fass, I have not seen Raptor.

They will mount on the frame, but not the same way as the factory one does.

the airdog II gets my vote as well. Will feed anything your heart desires. I run one and it has worked fine. My wife's truck has one as well and it keeps the hpfp fed no problem. My dad's 3500 dodge has the a-1000 and it has no trouble keeping those firehoses for sticks he has fed at all.

Kdogg are you feeding yours from the draw tube or a sump?

I have a titan tank and draw from the bottom where the factory draw tube would go, it looks like a built in sump of sorts. Just used a 1/2'' fitting drilled in the bottom.
