I work at a Chevrolet dealership and mainly work on GM cars and trucks

Ive got an 87 silverado 2 wd : whats the best way to pull the left side gas tank? I got the protective cover off of it , but how do I get to the bolts to drop the tank WITHOUT pulling the bed off

Well it's been a while since I have worked on a truck that old but there should be two bolts going through two gas tank straps and the only way to remove them is from underneath even if the bed was off. The bolt heads face the ground.
