if I remember mine was in front of passenger floor board mounted to the frame as it starts going up towards the engine compartment. don't forget to unhook the battery. also you will get a little gas out of it when you pull the lines so watch out for that

Not necessarily, release pressure in the fuel rail and lines via the schreader (sp?) valve on the top of the fuel rail under the hood. Get a rag and protect your eyes. The fuel pressure is almost 42 PSI.

Just another option.
