Default 1997 7.3l oil pan replacement

I have a 1997 F-250 with a straight axle dana 60, and it needs the oil pan replaced. I was wondering what is the easiest way to do it?

Cut cross member and weld after new oil pan on it.

That only one I would do if it was mine.

I paid 125$ to have mine done. Included gasket and oil. I supplied pan. I do recommend getting the composite pan rather than the steel.

And if you do it your self go to the dealer and pick up a new rubber/steel gasket.
