If the line leaking is plastic then it's not a brake line it's a fuel line. If the truck runs then it is most likely the return fuel line. If you can't get to it without dropping the tank then that's what you'll have to do, but you shouldn't need to remove it completely.
It is best to siphon out as much gas as possible. Before you removing the bolts take 2 pcs. of smooth fence wire or even 12ga. copper wire and make a cradle to support the tank, cut the wire at least 2 ft. longer than what it will take to go from the frame to the drive-shaft.
At a point about 1/3 in from each end of the tank lupe one end of the wire through holes in the frame and twist it a couple of times, then run it under the tank and around the drive shaft and twisting the ends a couple of turns.
After you get all the bolts out of the tank supports if you don't have room to repair the line you can loosen the wires around the drive-shaft and allow the tank to drop down some[this is why you need the wires 2 ft. longer]
After the repairs which will probably be replacing the rubber fuel hose that attaches the line to the tank,[I'd replace both of them] tighten the wires around the drive-shaft and replace the tank bolts. Remember to get all your bolts started before you tighten any,

You need to seperate the tank and pump for tank to be able to be seperated from vechical or you can attempt to remove the fuel lines. and all you need to do is release the tank straps with a 9/16 socket and be sure it is supported and low in gas. To gain access to the fuel pump, it is necessary to remove the fuel tank.

special tool (about $15 at any parts store). It pushes in around the fuel line to release a clip inside , then the fuel line just slides off. Sometimes takes some wiggling and jiggling.

Removing the fuel pump requires lowering the fuel tank from the vehicle, the fuel lines require special tools to remove the lines from the pump without damaging the lines( tool availiable at parts store) then remove the lock ring by turning counter clockwise , then the pump , is held to the bottom of the tank by a clip on each side of the pump once depressed the pump will come out.
