Bearings under oil pan?

When the oil pan is removed on the 3.0 motor and the motor out of truck, what are the bearings called that are accessible under where the pan sits?

just curious.

my main question here is:

some guys from here are willing to help remove motor and change bad oil pan. Besides buying a new pan/gasket/oil pump, what other parts are easily accessible to change since the motor will be out?

rear main seal?

any others?

main bearings are the bearings that the crankshaft spins in.

you would have to remove the crankshaft and measure the baring to get the right ones
