yes specially for issues when the fuel tank is full and u don't want to drain the tank
but the bed bolts can be a biotch

dropping the tank makes it easier to clean IMHO

I pulled my bed to do repairs and had to cut all but 2 bed bolts off. They would not come out! and yes it is easier to drop it and clean it and the straps before they rust out.

The tank is easy to drop. It's plastic and held in by two hinged straps. Just remove the bolts on the passenger side and the tank will fall.

Quick and easy to drop the tank read guzzles web page a few times before starting. Three screws in the fuel neck one hose clamp on filler tube a couple quick disconnects on the sending unit and two strap bolts. Go buy u a set of cheap fuel line disconnect tools a six piece kit is like 5 bucks

If you live in a rust free area and have 3 friends handy, then pull the bed.

As long as you can get the bed bolts out, just lift the bed.
And if you don't have anyone around to help lift the bed all the way off you can just jack up the front to gain access.
