probably time to drop the tank and change the fuel pump, unless you want to take the bed off.

I have a 98 dodge truck and I am having the same problem. It stalled once and I got it going then it quit on my wife in the middle of a busy intersection. Fuses are all good. The fuel pump was changed. The gas light is on the gauge reads empty and it turns over but it won't start. I'm starting to think that it could be something major. Can someone please give me some advice?
