Take off the bed, its only 6 bolts for the bed and then 3 for the filler neck. Don't forgot to undo the wiring harness in the back of the bed.

just leaking gas all over when you fill it up....so rather than throw money on the ground I found one for 20 bucks and just gonna throw it in tomorrow...there is no room up in there even dropping the tank looks like a total pain

I have the same problem on my '99. Let us know how you made out.

I assume you found the filler neck at a junk yard...I am still looking for one for a flairside.

well wasnt too bad...i even had to do it solo....just blovked each side up on frame rails and took me about 1-1/2 hrs....most of that was the bed bolts were corroded bad and took about 45 minutes to get out....would have been easier with two people but you have to work with what you have...

Well my Toyota P/U did just that. There was a small hole in the filler tube. I screwed in a 1/2" #6 pan head SS screw. That stopped the leak and it holds the tank pressure.
