When I took mine out over teh summer I just kind of had to work it until I finally could get it out from where it is situated, it was pretty obnixious, someone else might have a better method

yeah my rear tank got a leak in it too, stupid steel tanks. I just went and got a new tank to put, it wasnt too expensive, I did the same thing you did, when I was fixing the truck after the accident I took advantage of the time and did a lot of other repairs too
