Fuel Pump Failure 2007 v_10

With only 4,000 miles on our new SMB Ford v-10 we experienced a fuel pump faiure. This was afer a normal drive and upon an attempted re-start. The engine started, ran rough for 20 seconds then quit. There was no prior symptom, or warnings, smell etc.
Luck was with us as we were 5 miles from a dealer in town and not in the desert, yet a tow truck was needed and an unexpected overnight room and rental.
SMB was responsive and talked with the Ford dealer service mgr. and told them that this was the original Ford pump , just installed in a different tank.
We were very fortunate to get an overnight delivery and next day replacement.
Any other experiences with this very early pump failure on the e-350?

mine went out at 30000 miles

Funny -- this just happened to me a few weeks ago. Our van was at 30,000 miles.

I'm thinking maybe I should bring a spare fuel pump with me the next time I plan to be in Mexico.

I had a similar issue at about 17k miles on my V10, but it wasnt the pump itself. Turned out to be a loose ground wire at the pump relay at the tank. Which of course led to all kinds of back and forth between Ford and SMB on who was responsible, as the Ford dealer saw immediately that it was a replacement tank but SMG said pump and relay were not changed and so on. Ended up being a fairly simple fix, but we were fully loaded and just heading out on a trip on a Friday afternoon. Sucked to watch the thing get towed into the dealer and was a pain but glad it wasnt something worse.

When it happened, the van hesitated and started to die (as if, uh..running out of gas) but then came back just enough for me to get off the road into a nearby parking lot.
