Tools needed to drop fuel tank question

Are there any special tools required to drop the fuel tank on my 2004 F250 6.0?

Once upon a time I had a gas F250 and I needed a special tool to disconnect fuel lines. Using the thing was a real PITA.

You could just lift the bed so that you don't have to undo the fuel lines, all you need is a Torx socket and either some help lifting it off, or a floor jack and a piece of wood to jack it up enough to work on the tank.
