Place a jack with a block of wood on it under the oil pan, and loosen the engine mounts, on either side of the motor. Once those are loose, jack the engine up a few inches (10 or so, if you can), and get out from under the truck.
Lay blankets on either fender, and lay a 2x4 or 4x4 across the engine bay. Wrap a chain or strap around it several times, and connect it to any 2 points on the engine on opposite sides, to support the engine so you can remove the jack.
Drain the oil from the vehicle, using the oil pan's drain bolt. Remove the bolts all the way around the pan, and tap the sides of it with a rubber mallet or piece of wood to release the gasket seal. It will fall.
Installation is the reverse with a new gasket. Be sure to put gasket sealer in any sharp corners and clean the pan thoroughly while it's out.
You should also take this time to check for damage or wear on the bottom end of the engine, including metal shavings or sparkles/flecks in the oil pan.
