When I harpooned my tank I dropped it. I've heard that lifting the bed is easier, well, it must be stupid easy then, cause dropping the tank is a piece of cake.

I just ran the fuel level down to under 1/4, and used some stratigically placed pieces of 2x4 and a floor jack. All alone, it took 2 hours to drop the tank, cut the vent tube (harpoon mod), and reinstall.

I removed the bed to harpoon my tank. Took me about an hour to remove it and reinstall it. Much easier than dropping the tank.

So how did you get the bed out of the way? Removing the bed would be very easy, other than the obvious weight and size issue.

I harpooned my tank and I dropped the tank, but then in the process also "removed" the bed to make running my new fuels lines easier(installed pre-pump filter as well). Just take all the bolts out except the two rear ones and prop it up with some wood blocks on the front. Kind of like a dump bed.

"Harpooning" is going into the tank and cutting off the over flow tube and vent line that hang down in the tank towards the back of the truck. They are made of plastic so you cn cut them with pvc cutters. This lets you fill your tank up all the way instaed of standing at the pump all day waiting on the foam to go away. There are only two tubes that hang down inside the tank. Just cut them out.
