it is not a terrible job to do yourself if you plan ahead, have help,and the correct tools.
you should most definitely run most of the gas out of it, or pull the filler neck off to pump the tank. that will make it much easier to handle. if you are not comfortable runnign the gas out, you can pump it. some tanks (not sure of that vehicle) have a check valve in the filler neck of the tank that will not allow yout o pump it. in that case you jstu need a jack and a friend.
you will also need to make sure that you have the right fuel line disconnect tools to take the fuel lines off the tank. they shoudl be quick connect, a parts store or dealership may bae able to tell you teh exact type of disconnect tools to use.
if you do decide to drop it, here are a few tips:
1) relieve the fuel pressure on the system. many ways to do this. but the easiest is to pop the hood and find the schrader valve on the fuel rail. screw off the cap and press down ont eh valve, that will release the pressure on the system. you will spill gas ont eh engine, but by the time you are done removing the3 tank it w2ill evaporate.
2)check the topf of the tank for any vent or EVAP lines. sometimes these lines are hard plastic and have an aggravating squeeze type disconnect. they do nto require a tool to remove, but you have to squeeze them together to get them off. jsut look over the top fo the tank before you drop it to make sure you are not goign to break on.
3) IF yout ake the pump out to replace the sending unit, replace the o-rin on the pump. one that oring comes in contact with fuel it will swell. makign it really hard to get it to seal back. it is cheap insurance.
