It's mounted on frame rail, drivers side, close to the fuel tank.

No special tools are needed.

I never do. A little gas comes out but not enough to worry about. Just catch the small amount in a container so it doesn't get on the floor. Only about 2 oz. come out when opening the line and then what's in the filter.
