Pulling the pan off usually helps

I read that you have to remove the motor mount, the radiator, the dip stick assembly.

I just pulled out my motor and transmission. It is fairly easy to do, its the only one I have ever done all by myself. The oil pan is a pain to get to- I think you will need to follow the directions you've already read OR.. while I was under the truck, I seen the bar that runs from driver to passenger side of the truck, directly under the oil pan, you could cut that section out but that seems like it would be more work.

Yeah, thanks man. It looks like a pain. I don't want to chop up the that beam.

I wouldn't want to either

I will have to do one though, the beam further towards to front of the truck as seen better days, its bent and the welds are breaking.
