The tank lies in the skid plate but is held on both sides by two straps. I know on mine, to lower the tank, I had to disconnect the filler and vent hose. What I did is just unbolt the bolts by the bumper leaving the other side of the skid plate bolted up and was able to drop the tank after disconnecting the two hoses.

My 82 must be all out of wack I had to drop it to put on the new shackles I took out the 9 or 10 bolts to the skid plate thinking that the thing had straps holding it up no luck on mine thank god I had a jack under there at the time cause the only thing holding up my tank was the skid plate and hoses.

Bulletproof your right it should have been but even after soaking those in PB for several days before I took on that project I still could not get them to loosen
