The jeep is too new to siphon gas out of it the old way ur going to have to do a little bit of hard work to get that gold out of the tank

Thats right gas is gold I just feeled up the next day pump went out so whats the easiest way to get tank down and not loose all the gas bc since im dropping tank im going to replace while fuel pump module

If ur doing it on the ground us a two floor jacks and a couple 2x4 undo the tank straps after u take the skid plate off and jack the boards up onto the tank once u have the straps undone slowly lower the jacks until the tank stops then undo the filler neck and the fuel lines and unplug the pump/sending unit, then simply slide the tank out and drain it.

A shop with a lift could prob get it done in about an hr or so with the part u may want to think about going that route instead
