Can I Get The Oil Pan Off?

Anyone with a 6" lift or lower remove the oil pan without discoing the exhaust from the manifold? It seems i should be able to if i remove the trackbar,draglink,& swaybar. Looks like a tight fit and i don't want to snag the pickup tube either.

My tranny is out at the moment and am changing the rear main along with pump and new gasket.

I would just pull the two motor mount bolts and hoist the engine up instead of removing all that other stuff but IDK maybe you'll have to do all that too.

Nope. Cannot be removed without dropping the exhaust on the 5.2 Although removing the above mentioned items allowed more pan bolt clearance. This was almost as much fun as the CPS on my stocker which i am going to change as well. I can just crawl under the Jeep and look right at it...10 minute job.
