Default Oil pan removal 00 5.3 vortec

I remember one of the fellow members replacing oil pan gasket not so long ago....

For my truck, 00 with 5.3 engine and 4x4, how much of a hassle is it for DIY mech, with drive on ramps? Maybe jackstanding rear end same time for better access?

I have, otherwise, all tools necessary. Have Chilton too, but am more curious, what are the under water riffs to anticipate? They have something about pan alignment with trannie bellhousing, that always sounds important and easy to screw up.

Any brackets that need to be bent, like for transmission pan? Differentials falling down on your head?
I do not have much of loss, just wet front, no stains underneath at all, oil level stays where it's supposed to be for LONG time. Maybe it's just synth oil I'm using. But it's headed in the wrong direction with this.

Will appreciate first hand experiences.
