after the straps are off ,it should drop a few inches about eight or so ,than you should disconnect the two lines beside the fuel filter that run to the fuel pump,than you should disconnect the third one at the fuel pump,than once complete slowly pull the tank to the passenger side of vehicle,it will take a little foce but will come,it really helps if you could get the vehicle up about a foot or more before starting and you should have more than enough room to pull tank and fuel pump out,undo the two plugs than you have to turn the locking plate counter clockwise thats on top of fuel pump to get the pump out and if taking the tank right out disconnect the main line for fuelling

I know it can be a bear if the bolts and pins are rusted. Unless the new straps are OEM, some after market straps don't fit quite as well and you need Godzilla strength to manover them into place to get them pinned and bolted back up.
You shouldn't have to drop the tank as long as you do the straps one at a time. Get a floor jack, transmission jack or even a motorcycle jack and place wood under the gas tank and do one strap at a time. I used a second jack to help push the strap in place so I could push it into place on a 97 Dakota. Good luck and sometimes it goes smooth but, some times it makes a preacher say things they wouldn't say in church. :)
