removing rear crossmember bolts-easy?

anyone invented an easy way to remove the rear body bolts without dropping the fuel tank?

Follow-up Post:

well...after much due consideration...I don't know if those rear crossmember bolts are all supposed to be captive but only two of mine were...but, you can get the ones near the ends by reaching in with a wrench from under the crossmember and ratcheting the outside bolt head...the middle two require figuring a way to place the open end wrench from the small slot area left open between the rear tub and the top of the crossmember...then ratchet the outside bolt head...I attached a "handle" at right angles to the wrench with a pair of needle nose pliers...felt for the wrench seating as I rotated the bolt head and then wrenched it open...quicker than dropping the fuel tank and makes it easier to access the fuel tank if you're already pulling the rear tub as I am...hopes this helps someone in the future...

The outside pairs are nuts and bolts, the inside 6 are captive nuts.
