could be a couple things on the top side of the tank. Filler neck or where the fuel pump mounts or a line, either way you will have to drop the tank unless you can see the problem with a mirror and can get in there.

If you have a full tank, it's almost easier to take the bed off. It takes 3 to take the 6.5 bed off, 6 bolts, 2 electrical for lights, 2 or 3 bolts for the fuel filler neck, lift up 12". weighs about 350-400 #'s.

Oh, the top of the tank not the filler neck, I should have read that better.
