Dropping fuel tank

Hey all. I have a 2011 F350 short box. I have a transfer flow fuel tank in the back of my truck. Works awesome except I have developed a leak from the top of my fuel tank on the truck. Its either coming from the fuel hose or overflow hose on the top of the tank. With the tank installed I can barely get my hand up there. I was able to tighten the clamp on the fuel hose a little but not enough to get the leak to stop. My question is if I disconnect the fuel spout from the side of the truck how low can I lower the tank so I have more room to get at these hoses without disconnecting too much stuff. Thanks a bunch.

There is a video on youtube of a guy installing a Titan Tank on his 2011. That should give you some ideas

Pretty cool videos. My only concern after watching it is that even when the tank has 10 gallons in it the truck gives a low fuel warning. Kind of scary to not be able to just the gauge anymore.
