Default fuel pump replacemant ?

Looks like going to have to drop the gas tank to make a repair to the plumbing. Just wondering if it would be worthwhile to change out the fuel pump module at the same time since it is a bit of a PITA dropping the tank.
PT has 90K on it. Does it make sense to change out the pump as a precaution or would it be a waste of time and money ?

Mine has 130,000 miles, and is perfectly OK. And probably they are built to go longer than that! But I guess it might have a bit to do with how clean and pure the gas is around there... Maybe there is a servicable filter in there??

I got 380,000 miles out of mine until before I had to replace it. Yours is still like new!

Now over 458,000 miles and still going.

Good point, I think I was lucky.
