that's a diesel...the tank appeared to be on the trunk side...will have to watch Mick's vid~

Guess that's SMART, keeping the elements...salt, mud Away from the tank...rusting is minimal....probably a poly tank anyways~

Honestly bud, it's a pretty easy thing to do. The hardest part is probably actually taking the thing out once it's all undone, unplugged... Good luck.
