It depends on whether the truck has 4wd or 2wd.. GM recommends removing the engine from the chasis. However, where there is a will, there is a way.. Try removing the engine mount bolts and any other connections to the engine that would Prevent you from jacking it up 3 - 4 inches, or enough height to clear the crossmember when removing the pan..
