I've got to replace the fuel pump/sending unit in my 06. How big of a job is it to drop the fuel tank? It has the skid plate on it which looks like it could be a bit of a job by itself. Anyone done this themselves?
I have done it to add the skid plate to my XK. Look for the skid plate installation instructions, that will get you most of the way to replacing your fuel pump.
I put mine Jeep up on four jack stands and used my motorcycle lift to lower and raise the gas tank and skid plate. That worked well. I also drove my Jeep to almost empty before working on it to reduce the weight of the gas tank.
