I think you are right. Unbolt it, lights, and filler neck.

Bed bolts are T55's. The filler neck is 3 7mm bolts IIRC. Don't forget to unplug the wiring harness for the lights at the rear.

The only thing to be careful about is you want to get a filler neck from a similar year becasue they changed the diameter of the tubing.
