Default 93 'burban Gas Tank Stuck

I think the fuel pump went on my 93 Suburban. I took the straps loose, removed the filler neck, and disconnected the wires. The thing will not move!! I bent a breaker bar trying to get it loose. Have I missed something? It's 1/2 full of gas, so it's heavy. I've never had a tank be so stubborn (and I've pulled a lot of tanks).

I'd say use a torch and just cut it out!

I could, but you might as well call Col. Sanders afterwards, 'cause I'd be extra crispy!! I did get it out, but now I need a new tank ($220), sending unit ($104) and the pump ($64.00). I really don't have the $$ to put into this truck, so it may sit for a long while.
