Brake Line behind Gas Tank

ok so today when i was doing some things i noticed my brakes are messing up well i stoped at AutoZone today since it was close by and checkd it out no fluid well i found that i have a leak on the rear line wedge up aginst the frame beside the gas tank now how hard is it to get the tank down out to get to that line to replace it was hopeing to do it myself and not have to waste money on taking it to someone since i'm almost broke and no other way to get to work without it

As difficult as this may sound, it may be easier to remove the bed to get at that line. 6 bolts hold the bed to the frame, and the taillight wiring is a simple unplug of a connector. If you have another buddy or two, it can lift off easily.

How full is the gas tank?
