Gas tank install

I have a 94 ranger 4x4 extended cab which I had been in the process of replacing the front leaf spring hangers. Shocks, and exhaust. During this adventure I removed the gas tank. If this is a stupid question just say so. I've been known to have brain lapses and can't figure something out. Take some time away and come back and be successful. Anyway, I can't get the tank to slide back in. I know it came out of there but this past weekend when I tried putting it back in it just would go in. There is very little space to work with between the back of the tank and axle. What am I missing? besides brain power?

Thanks for the reply. The bed is off and the tank is out. You might want to read my post again.

I know how I removed it. That's what's frustrating. Although it took a little wiggling and turning to get the tank out. I wasn't expecting it to be such a bear to get back in. But it's not the first part I've installed that needs to be positioned just right to go in. I suppose I'm going to need to just be patient and get the tank positioned just right. Must only go in one way. I suppose the answer I was looking for is what I probably already know.
