Hi, I dropped the tank on my 99 Tracker a couple of months ago.
The worst part for me was removing the receiver hitch, rusty bolts & three different sizes.
I didn't remove the bumper and only needed to lower the tank enough to reach the top, same as you will need to do.
Have some small hose clamps on hand, never hurts to add an extra if you suspect one may be leaking.
Use a floor jack and lower the rear of the tank after removing the bolts holding the straps at the rear of the tank, just leave the front as is.
You might need to loosen them. Play it by ear.
You might be able to pressurize the tank if you have an air source, remove the filer cap and wrap a shop towel around the air chuck and give it a
squirt - but DON'T OVER DO IT 5-10lbs. maximum.
Then listen for air escaping. There is a return line and a vent as well as the fuel line to the injectors.
Also a purge line from the canister.
Oh, wires too.
I'm here in the USA.
