How do you release the fuel pressure at the fuel rail on a 2005 4.0?

I am installing a Savvy gas tank skid and the instructions say to release the fuel pressure. On my 05 I am not seeing the schrader valve on the fuel rail like the earlier models. What is the trick?

The fuel pump relay or fuse should be pulled and start it 'til it runs out of gas.

If there's no valve, I would just pull the fuel line connector with a few shop towels around it. It doesn't release very much.

Odd that there isn't one though...

Yes. I was trying to agree with you and it came out funny.
