That 10 gallons of fuel at 6+ pounds per gallon will sure add to difficulty of trying to remove and re-install. Personally, I wouldn't consider it unless I emptied the tank first.

I haven't done a YJ, just a TJ and I've slept a lot since then, but as I recall it's really pretty easy. I used some wood blocking on a floor jack to raise and lower the tank. Not sure on a YJ if you need to loosen the fuel fill or not but I expect you will need to.

Empty that tank before you re instal bro, oh and also on the drivers side of the tank, make sure you disconnect the power wires.
