Turn the fuel pumps offs, the easy way is to pull the relay. then start the engine. It will run out of gas and quit. Restart several times until it doesn't start.

it was a pain in the ***, but i finally got it. the truck doesn't fit in the garage, it was about -20 with the wind, and that damn filter is tucked up in there pretty well next to the gas tank. but with the right tools it finally came off. thanks everyone!
