sadly I don't think there is. The oil pan is huge and sections of the frame are in the way of getting it in and out without damaging the pan severly. pulling that massive engine and replacing the pan, then putting the engine back in and reconnecting everything in 14 hours is a good estimate. sorry for the bad news

I'd recommend getting a service manual first. I got one for my 2005 2500 cummins from www.promanuals.net. I also had to to remove the oil pan and replace it with another one.

Mark position of drive shaft and yoke - to install in the same position (not to upset balance)
Remove and discard small "U" bolts on yoke Slide drive shaft up spline end to dislodge drive shaft from yoke.
You can either "beat" U join out of shaft, but better to bring to auto parts store that has a machine shop to install new joint
Use new "U" bolts to install
Make sure "U" joint is fully seated in yoke and installed in same position as removed

Place an oil drain container under the oil pan. Loosen the drain fitting with a wrench until oil drains from the pan. When oil is done draining, tighten the drain fitting.
Place an jack under the transmission to support it. Remove the pressure on the transmission crossmember.
Place the new gasket on the pan and push the new oil pan into place. Finger tighten the oil pan mounting bolts to hold it in place. Tighten the bolts with a torque wrench to 18 ft-lbs. DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN THE BOLTS! Doing so will cause the gasket to deform and create leaks!
Attach the oxygen sensor socket to the exhaust pipe with a wrench.
