Oil pan is leaking. How hard to pull the motor?

Basically like the title says, my oil pan is leaking and I need to get the motor out to get it fixed properly. How hard is it to pull the motor out of one of these trucks? I am reasonably mechanically inclined and I have the proper tools to pull it out. I am just wondering if this is more of an *** ache than it is worth. If I don't do it, I'm selling the truck.

It's a huge PITA. If it's leaking from the dipstick, it's an easy fix with the motor in. Otherwise it depends on how much time and money your willing to put into it. Plan on spending a solid weekend doing it. You'll more than likely find other things you'll have to replace in the process of doing it.

Its not a PITA. Takes about a day and a half. But if your OCD like me, it will take a couple months. Lol

It's not that bad, just time consuming and slightly dangerous. I wouldn't recommend pulling the core support though
