Question about 1988 Ford Ranger
Need to know if I need to pull motor? Pretty tight under there w/all the running gear and the odd shaped pan(drops down in back).
You need to pull the motor, trust me it is an absolute nightmare doing it in the truck and you have to hoist the engine off the mounts anyway.

SOURCE: oil pan for 1993 thunderbird
No you done have to drop any thing, you just need a new oil pan and gasket for it, loose all bolts around the oil pan and you should be able to remove it, remember remove all the broken off of the old gasket very well before you apply a new one on with grease or gasket cilicon stuff then new oil pan, good luck.

SOURCE: Trying to drop the oil
done this on several i-6 f-150s. slide back or remove transmission, remove motor mount bolts from frame(not motor), jack motor up as far as possible without damaging egr valve or wiper motor when they hit, shim under motor mounts so that when you drop the jack the motor does not come back down any(the motor is well balanced on the mounts, it will not fall out of the truck like a v8 will), then remove the oil pan. you May have to remove the pickup tube(usually not), and you May have to rotate the crankshaft so that the lobes clear the oil pan. this is a common problem with these trucks due to the size of the oil pan(Huge), and the minimum pan to crossmember clearance

Yes you do. trust me you don't want to get that thing half way out and down and not be able to continue. Soak those rusted exhaust studs in a good penetrating oil over night. I bet they come right out. I would not recomend cutting the pipe.

The motor mounts have a hinge bolt that goes through the upper engine hard bracket and the engine mount rubber section, it goes from from to rear in line with the engine, remove the nuts and take the load off the mount with a floor jack under the pan (use a block softwood to avoid denting the pan), once the nut and load is off slide the long bolt out and raise the engine.
