almost any truck u will need to at least lift the engine to R/R the pan and/or gasket but it can be done.
as for the water pump, the fan clutch snout shouldnt be an issue and i dont think theres any HD water pumps out there. if u didnt have A/C id say get one for an A/C equip'd truck but that ideas out.
