Truck listed above is a crew cab. I am trying to remove the fuel tank, I have the straps undone and there is a support that still holds it up. I'm worried the bolts will snap and wont be able to use support any more. Any ideas if I have to remove that to remove tank?
Do you
have the same problem?

I think the bolts you are looking for on are the frame adjacent to the tank.

Yea is there 3 or 4 because the one goes to the shackles and don't want leaf spring to fall. Also I am doing it on the ground so not much room.
