Taking Off the Oil pan

i have tried to find a topic on taking out an oil pan, mb its out there mb its not....b4 i start i have a 1999, 4.0 OHV 4x4

basically, my engines having troubles, and i want to pull the oil pan to look at the oil intake tube next time i change the oil. BUT
are there any tricks to taking the oil pan off? i have heard i may need to loosen the engine mounts and lift the engine, others say it drops right out..

Thanks
