Complaint - Fuel System Diesel

I AM THE ORIGINAL OWNER OF A 1995 CHEVROLET CK2500 4 X 4 TRUCK WITH THE 6.5 LITER DIESEL ENGINE. DUE TO LIFT PUMP FAILURE, THE TRUCK DIES WITH NO WARNING. THE LIFT PUMP HAS BEEN REPLACED 3 TIMES (CURRENTLY AT REPAIR SHOP FOR THIS AGAIN). THE DEALER HAS REPLACED IT WITH A NEW LIFT PUMP SUPPOSEDLY EACH TIME, BUT I WAS NOT SHOWN OR GIVEN THE OLD LIFT PUMP. THERE IS A MAJOR SAFETY FACTOR INVOLVED WITH THIS PART FAILURE/DESIGN. THE TRUCK HAS DIED 2 OUT OF 3 TIMES IN HEAVY TRAFFIC. THE '95 CHEVY TRUCK IS USED TO PULL A HORSE TRAILER. I AM TO THE POINT I AM AFRAID TO PULL THE HORSE TRAILER LOADED WITH OUR HORSES WITH THIS CHEVY TRUCK. I CAN ONLY IMAGINE WHAT COULD HAPPEN WHEN YOU HAVE A TRAILER BEHIND THIS TRUCK WHEN THE LIFT PUMP STARTS GOING OUT AND YOU TRY TO STEER WITHOUT POWER STEERING OR POWER BRAKES, BECAUSE THE TRUCK HAS QUIT. I FOUND A GM TECHNICAL SERVICE BULLETIN #77-63-06AB ON THE INTERNET IN REGARDS TO A "FIX" FOR THIS. THIS ARTICLE ALSO STATES THE POTENTIAL DANGER OF THIS FAILURE SUCH AS PULLING INTO HEAVY TRAFFIC OR DESCENDING A STEEP HILL AND LOSING THE USE OF POWER STEERING AND POWER BRAKES.
