Removing def tank pointers

After about 2.5 years of being deleted I'm planning on removing my def tank to wash out due to the fact it was about half full when I deleted. Then I will be putting back on truck.

Does anyone have any tips or advice of removing the tank. I can't seem to find very much info or any instructions.

After I do mine I'll have a buddy's truck to do as well

If I remember rite there is only 4 bolts holding it in and the lines that used to go to the exhaust are just quick connects and the feed hose is just a worm clamp I had mine out in 15 mins or so and its just sitting on the side of my house smelling like a farm on hot days

I'll be tackling the project in the next few weeks. I haven't looked yet but does it have brackets like the ones that hold the fuel tank?

After removing bolts will the tank lower enough to reach the lines and feed hose?

Or before lowering tank do I need to remove feed hose from bed where filler cap is?

No its not like the straps holding the tank its more like a tub that the def tank fits in to if I remember correctly you can undo the lines and harness with no problem before dropping the tank

It also helps to loosen the skid plate at the back near the tank. That helped me alot while removing mine.

How many gallons does it hold. Would it be posible to convert it to an auxillary fuel tank.

I'm pretty sure 5.5 gallons. It's possible with a little pump to transfer the fuel from the tank to the main tank filler neck.

How'd you end up with cleaning the tank? I'm doing my delete this weekend and want drain and rinse the tank. Only concern I have is the residual DEF in the pump somehow corroding or clogging up the pump over time. Only concerned for if/when I have to return to stock down the road that the pump will still work.

I would say warm water should be suffice.
