Default fuel pressure

How do we relieve the fuel pressure in these trucks? I plan on wrapping both fuel rails in gold foil and don't see a listing for the fuel pump relay on the fuse box list.I'm new to dodges,used to fords and mitsu's so still learning about these trucks.Thanks.

Hi, Travis, and thanks for joining the RamforumZ. I encourage you to stop by the Newbie Checkin section and introduce yourself so other members and give you a proper how-do-ya-do.

There has to be either a fuse or a relay for the fuel pump. After you remove the fuse/relay, find the zerk fitting, wrap a rag around a flat head screw driver and relieve the pressure.

Pull the fuel pump fuse and let it sit for at least 30 min to allow it to drain back through the pump and drop the pressure. It will hold pressure for about 20 min after turning off the engine.

They won't be hot with the engine running. Wrapping them is a waste of time.

If you're worried about vapor lock,it won't happen.
The cold fuel idea basically is carb beneficial,where the fuel can actually boil in the lines and carb bowls
If you're looking for horsepower,hot fuel is a benefit,you want cold air,but the hotter the fuel the better as long as you don't boil it in the lines and run lean.
Hotter fuel vapourizes and mixes with air better,breaks down into a finer mist
It won't boil in the lines on a high pressure fuel injection system.
You won't gain anything wrapping them
Smokey Yunick did a bunch of testing way back years ago,and the hotter the fuel the more horsepower he found
