Default fuel sending unit access

Can anyone tell me an easy way to access the output of the fuel sending unit? My gauge went from reading a quater tank to going all empty after I gave her a full tank of fuel . This is an 01 ram 1500 with a 5.2. This truck also has a faulty PCM that I'm saving up for. Could it be related? She runs pretty good, I haven't had her very long so I haven't had a chance to figure out her little quirks. And the last Dodge I owned was a old 1974 D100 so I'm a little ignorant right now. If someone could tell me the output of the sender (ohm range) and where an easy acess would be I would really appreciate it.
Next month I'm going to tackle the a/c system and I will post some picks.

While it is possible for the PCM to be the problem, it's far from my first guess. Chrysler doesn't list the ohm range for the sender but you would do just as well to check continunity and watch for droputs while moving the float.

You can either drop the tank or pull the bed off (Its easier to pull the bed)
