Yeah the rear end must come out, and pretty sure you're going to have to remove the rear crossmember as well. I don't think there's enough room to snake the gas tank out with it in.

just drop the rear-end and cross-member as on,that's how i did it when i helped a friend strip a wagon.after dropping it,i just un-bolted one end of each tank straps and also had to remove the plastic shield(found out they'll hold a tank up)

after that it came right out.(you might want to disconnect the fuel lines an wires for the sending units through access panels in the bk)
