It's a question of access. Look underneath vehicle for any obstructions (Otherwise, obstructions must be removed first, e.g. support brace, splash shield, stabilizer, etc, ...). If you can see entire pan and all bolts, just drain oil and remove pan . Remove old gasket. Clean both surfaces. Install new gasket. Use high temp RTV (red). Replace oil pan. Hand tighten bolts. Then use correct torque and torque pattern.

Remove motor mount bolts and rear transmission crossmember bolts or nuts,suppport engine/trans. see if u have enough clearance between pan and axle remove pan. if not, split the exh away from the manifolds. worth a try

The engine does have to be raised. The bolts are not easy to get to until the engine is lifted and the engine mount is removed. I'm doing this job right now and the book time is around 5 hours.

If you want to repair the oil pan I would also check lower engine mount for leaking oil and cracks in anti sway bar near fitting's. This due to engine mount is oil filled. OEM sway bar is made of tubular steel and they crack easy. Replacement sway bar is solid steel. Here's the kicker. When they pull the lower frame to service oil pan. The engine mount and sway bar are attached to that frame. A honest mechanic should only charge for parts ($35 for mount and $100 for sway bar) and maybe a extra hour. My mechanic did all in 5 hours. FYI gasket is only $35 bucks. Good luck
