You don't have to drop the tranny to get to the rear main seal. If you have a two-piece RM seal you only have to drop the oil pan to access it. Here is a pretty good write up...

Edit: Didn't see the post above about not dropping the tranny...didn't mean to be redundant. This link is still pretty helpful though.

I was wondering if anyone had a write up or something with pictures of how to replace my oil pan. My jeep is a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo L6 4.0L.

Mine is leaking and I would like to replace the pan and gasket. Not sure what I have to move etc tho.

Thanks for the help!
I have the same engine on my 04. Where was your pan leaking? I just changed my oil and noticed mostly surface rust, but there were a few questionable spots. I scraped and sanded the pan and am coating it with black high-temperature paint.

Everything of removing the gasket and the oil pan is normal only thing you have to do to get it out really easy is I would first remove the starter that will make easy access and removal in of course putting the back on
