Some trucks you may have to pull the cover off to drain it. I'm not 100% sure on your specific truck though. Try getting a Chilton book for reference on it

Go to local auto parts store and get something that looks like a grease gun but actually is used for sucking the oil out of there... You'd have to drop the whole 3rd member to drain it.
