oil pan gasket

Sorry if this has been asked a few time before but I seem to be reading conflicting information throughout numerous threads. My oil pan gasket is leaking.

I have a 2004 Ranger Edge, 3.0 supercab, which obviously has the torsion bar suspension instead of the coil springs. Will the oil pan just drop down, without lifting the engine or moving the tranny?

Some people say it will with this suspension, some say it won't. Who here has actually done it?

Well I went ahead and tackled it. The pan did come off without moving anything other than the starter. It wasn't easy though. The back of the pan was jammed between the oil pump and the transmission. It took some muscle but I finally got it off. I'm lucky I didn't mess up the pump.
