Oil pan replacment on a 4.7

I just found out the oil pan in my 2000 Dakota is rusted thru and leaking oil. Is it a major job to replace it like I have to remove the engine? Anyone have this problem before? What are the fixes if any?
Thanks for any insight you can provide.

yeah my oil pan leaks to, I havent done it because either the engine has to be lifted up a little bit or the axels have to be removed... I just stuck a screw in the hole and put Putty on it, Its one of those things i've had the truck 3 years... Fixed it 3 times.. usually every spring since i baught it i've done it.
