Drain the tank first....other than that, it's pretty straightforward!

1 - Disconnect Battery
2 - Drain tank
3 - Disconnect lines going to fuel pump assy. (Accessible from under the passenger's side right infront of rear tire)
4 - Disconnect electrical connection to fuel pump assy.
5 - prop up gas tank
6 - remove two straps holding the gas tank in. Single bolt for each strap.
7 - Lower tank carefully enough to reach around and remove the filler neck.

Install it in reverse direction.
