Default 2000 4.0 oil pan gasket removal

Hi I have 2000 ranger xlt 4.0 I just changed oil few days ago and noticed a rattling noise in oil pan. I would like to take the oil pan off. Is this easy or do I got to remove the tranny and jack up the motor?or can I just climb under it and remove the bolts and slide it out I'm hoping? I've searched several sites and found that 98-99 rangers its not so easy and the 3.0 motor you must remove the tranny but mine is a 2000 4.0 I couldn't find any info. I like to do the work myself like a real man. I'm thinking the rattle is part of the timing chain tentioner? But anyhow I'd like to take the oil pan off and start there. How hard is it to get that off ? Truck runs great just dont want to have the problem get worse Please help?
