All about the same. Gently brace the tank, undo the bolts and straps first. Soak and wire brush the threads for the bolts first, then you can usually loosen them about halfway and unlock the bolt from the crossmember to undo the straps. Oh, and the higher the vehicle the easier it is. From the front of the tank (I believe), you should be able to disconnect the fuel line and sending unit wire even before anything is loose (again, usually), and save that little double clip grounding strap on the fuel line (you'll see it), gas tank nozzle is in a giant rubber grommet, they slide right on and off, but undo the nozzle from body panels to prevent sheetmetal damage.

The rest is true though.  It's not that hard

I wasn't sure if there is any attachment there or not, but yes, I did know that was where it was located. I may be an A/B/E body more than the rest, but I do pick things up from time to time.
