Oil pan removal on 6.0L

Truck is an 04, 4x4. Can you replace the pan without pulling the engine? I'm 100 miles from the truck so can't look at it.

Thanks

I remember seeing a thread where a guy changed a rusty oil pan by raising the engine a couple of inches. I sure a tech will chime in.

Truck is a wrecked total loss that I'm rebuilding. When it was wenched out of the ditch the oil pan was "dented". If it was easy to replace I was going to do it. If Engine has to come out, I'm gonna try it like it is. No leaks apparant. It isn't that bad. But a little concerned with where the pick-up tube is. Center of pan or kicked off to the driver/passenger side? Damage is more on the drivers side, rear of the pan.

Thanks all!

May be a stupid question but I wonder you couldnt just cut the cross member out and weld a new one in after the job is done? With proper bracing etc the frame wont twist. Just curious is all, A good fabricator can make it look better than new

I have taken the oil pan off by lifting the engine up a bit... Then I pulled the engine out through the front of the truck


Done it twice in the last year

How hard of a job is this? What king of hoist / engine stand are you using to hold such a monster motor?

Not "too" hard...

I could take out the engine and tranny out in a weekend with a helper.
This should be a day or two of work for a bigginer i assume.

Just a regular 2 ton Harbor Freight engine puller
