You sure itís leaking at the oil pan and not the rear main seal? The oil pan is pretty simple. The rear main can be done as well, you just have to be really careful. Another guy in the forum has been doing a RMS so there is info there on it.

The rear main seal is a pain in the ***. It took me 3 to finally get it. Though the first one I put in half asleep and the second in the dark. The 3rd one I used dish soap to coat the top and loosened all the main bearing caps. Seems good not. The oil pan is a cake walk. The valve cover you have limited room. Rear main seal and valve cover is very common to leak. Your will replace the oil pan anyway when you do the rear main. Any time you replace the oil pan gasket you may as well do the rear main as they only seem to last about 50,000 miles generally.

With the 4.0. No ...you do not. It's a two piece seal. It can be finagled in without pulling the trans.

As for the oil pan and valve cover. In terms of gaskets, two of the easier ones to replace

Stop whining about the 'ride' - If your YJ ain't wrangling your soul free, then might I suggest you buy a stationwagon... at least you can fit all your bull**** in the back.
