well having pulled my oil pan before i personally thought it wasnt too difficult. the directions posted above are way non-essential. theres a cross member thats in the way of dropping the oil pan, you must remove that, i believe its 4 bolts. once you do that remove all the bolts around the oil pan. once you pull that down thats it. theres 2 maybe 3 bolts holding the gasket in along with the pickup tube. remove those and replace the gasket and your rusted pan. bolt back together and your done. ill get under my truck tomorrow to be sure, but PM me if any questions...i think there was 1 or 2 bolts on the pan that were a PITA to get to, but ill look to remember. oh and you have to remove that dust cover on the tranny as stated in the directions above...almost forgot that...i believe that was the 2 bolts that were hard to get to...remove the dust cover and your good.
