Is it a 4x4? And why do you need to pull the pan off?
no,its not a 4x4,and its leaking
The pan is leaking or gaskets? Just be sure it aint the rear main seal or something else! I would try and remove the pan before anything else, then if need be the cross member and anything else that gets in the way.
