That's what I did on mine and was still holding for 6 years when the truck died of cancer.

I found that if you removed the drivers side bed bolts and just loosened the passenger side bolts and the fill tube from the bedside you can lift the bed high enough to get to the top of the tank.

If you have 2 floor jacks it's easy to drop the tank also, hardest part would be getting in there to disconnect the fuel lines.
