88 p/u, trying to swap fuel pump by lifting bed, one bed nut just spins?

Iíve got all 4 on driver side loose. 3/4 of passenger side came right off. The furthest forward of the bed mounting bolts was double nutted with 19 mm nuts. The second one is just spinning and I canít get enough pressure on the carriage type bolt with my finger to allow the nut to loosen..not much rust but enough hunk to where I canít get it loose. Any ideas besides dropping the tank or cutting a hole in the bed to get at it from the top??

thanks so much
Donnie

im just going to be the first to say it. Drop the tank.

if i remember correctly its only 6 bolts, the skid comes off with the tank, remove a few hoses, undoo the whole fuel nozzle, it all drops easily.

I dropped my tank with 2 galloons remaining with only a regular jack.

re installing it is even easier then dropping it.
