    I think allot of people use the trap door method (from the top cutting a door for access).

    You'll have to loosen everything up and lower the rear as low as you can get it. Make sure you free up the brake lines on the drivers side as they will stretch tight when you lower the rear. It's kind of tricky getting it out the first time. The tank has to go forward and twist upwards at the same time.
