I just did mine. You should be able to do it your self as long as you have the rear lifted about a foot (SECURELY!!). No special tools. The only problem I encountered was that the metal fuel lines coming from the fuel sender that connecto to plastic lines on the passenger side. The metal lines had corroded and the "quick connect" connectors wouldn't disconnect. SO what I did was unmount the plastic lines from the frame as far up towards the front as I could to have slack in the lines. Then I dropped the tank with them still attached. You can then cut them off (the plastic lines and connectors), clean up the metal fuel lines with a wire brush, and put on new connectors from fuel line repair kits found at most local parts stores.
Sidenote, did your pump fail or does your car want to stall on right hand turns when you get down to about 1/3 tank? If it'* the latter, it'* caused by the strainer, not the pump. That'* why I did mine, and replaced the pump while I was in there just for peace of mind. Hopefully I won't have to do it again any time soon.
Run the tank as dry as you can first. And have a gallon or two handy in case you run out so you can get to the gas station.
