SOURCE: ford explorer fuel tank change
this is pretty easy. You first have to remove the skid plate which is held on by three bolts then once you have that done you need to disconnect the fuel fill tube. which is the three inch tube coming off the back of the tank. next remove the breather tube right next to the fill tube. then you will see two metal straps holding the tank itself. their should be one bolt each on the ends you can see. dont worry about the other ends they are a tongue and groove type setup. once you have the one side off the side against the frame will slip right off. Be sure to have a jack under the tank so it dosnt drop on you. but once you have the tank down disconnect the pump by turning on the ring that runs around its top. You may have to put a piece of wood on one of the tines and smack it with a hammer to knock it loose. once that is done jack up the rear driver side of your truck and pull the tank right ou. put it back in, in the reverse order.

DRAIN IT! - you don't need to wash it out or anything, snice a little petrol in a diesel engine will clean the fuel pipes of any sediment and wax, it's actually a done thing to put a litre or two of petrol in a tank of diesel for diesel engines...
