There are three ways...drop the fuel tank, lift the bed up, or cut a hole in the bed (That one personally I would not do)

Hi TST we did it again...I was off looking for alternatives to dropping the tank and your post was not there. But after looking at 3 videos your answer really is the best. Dropping the tank is easier than taking the bed off, the tank must be drained anyway
