How heavy is the bed?

Looking at doing the hutch mod here soon and to try and fix my float or something cause my fuel gauge is way off. I have helped my dad do this before on his truck and dropping the tank is a pain in the ***, so I am thinking about trying to pull the bed.

Is the bed too heavy for just two or three people to pull off? Would it be easier with an engine hoist or should I just drop the tank and do it that way?

It's a short bed by the way.

Thanks

Charlie

It's not very heavy. Three people could lift it easily

I find it easier to drop the tank. It can be done in 20 minutes assuming their is under a 1/4 tank in it.

I plan to pull the bed when I do it. I was wondering, is there anything that can be done to fix the gauge from going so damn slow when you fill up?? That thing needs a kick in the azz to speed it up!
