Has anyone replaced or repaired the mount for the forward fuel tank strap? At 148,000 miles my strap mount has rusted through. Currently holding the tank up with a ratchet strap.

Do I need to pull the bed? Can I just drop the tank and all wiring/plumbing will follow along? My son has an 8klb 2-post lift. Thought I would drop the tank onto a set of saw horses and lift the truck up as far as the connected stuff would let me, spin it out of the way and weld a new plate in position. Pulling the bed will give me access to the rear of the tank, maybe that's the business end anyway.

I probably won't be attempting this for a few weeks. My son wants to send it to a shop, I think he doesn't want to fool with it. And he's freaking about the ratchet strap. Kids these days will never know what we've seen or been through.
