I answer to your question, no, because it would take no more than easily removing just 4 bolts, and dropping the tank.
Thank you... Four bolts is perfect. I also know that an 8 gallon (almost empty) tank weighs a lot less than a 35-40 gallon (almost empty) tank.

When you mentioned the tank fit, but was tight... my mind went to the horror job of replacing the fuel pump on a friend's car -- not fun.

And yes... you are correct (again) that some engineers don't think about the repair jobs they will be thrusting onto the mechanics or diy owners of these vehicles.

And I do appreciate you taking the time to answer the questions we have.

Working out the rear suspension mounting, looks like it will work out.

Rear anti-intrusion bar from the B pillar to the C pillar, is welded in and is part of the suspension mounting

Totally left field, but do you have an idea on what seats will be used or perhaps you know of a line of seats we could swap out the stock without issue if we wanted?
