No big job Really. Just locate your Drain Plug for the Oil. Thepan is right there, Remove the Bolts around the Pan and Remove. You will lose all of your oil so, Have something there to catch it all. Clean it all around the Edges of the Block where the Pan mounts with Degreaser and Make sure that you Scrape the Old Gasket off of Both the Block and the Pan. Run a Thin Bead of Blue ATV Silicone around the Pan Edge, Lay the Gasket on top of this Silicone. Put another Thin line on top of the Gasket and Reinstall. This Silicone is High Temp Silicone and will Seal Very Well. Make sure to put oil Back in the Motor! Please Rate my Response, I need all the Help That I can Get! Thanks!

SOURCE: TRANSMISSION OIL PAN
the depth of the tranny pan isn't really important. if you want to check the fluid let the vehicle idle and check it while its running unless its manual than you'll have to do it from underneath

On many vehicles the exhaust runs under the oil pan, on others there
may have a cross member in the way, or brackets that will hinder oil
pan removal. These parts need to be removed. The exhaust nuts/bolts
will most likely be rusted. It is best to spray them with penetrating
oil. You can use WD-40, PB Blaster, Deep Creep, or something similar.
After you have sprayed all of the nuts/bolts, let the penetrating oil
soak in for about 10 minutes. Now remove the exhaust pipe that runs
under the oil pan. The catalytic converter may, or may not be in the
piece that you have to remove. If you have to remove a cross member,
simply unbolt it and set it to the side, it is best to mark which side
is the front, as some will only go on one way. Other than that, you should not have to pull the engine at all.
please rate this response and god bless.

you'll need to clean every thing off to find where it originally started,the wind going under the truck blows it all back,did you use silicone on the corners in the front where the gasket material gaps.if it is not leaking at an idle,it must only leak at high RPMs when the oil is flying around in the pan,you might have good luck on a hoist and take it thru the gears and get it up to forty mph,
