Question 2000 4.0 ohv oil pump bad, Help

So I sold all my other vehicles and made some nice $$$ I went out and bought myself a new project to turn into a dd. a 2000 explorer 4x4 with the 4.0 ohv motor. I knew full well when I bought it the oil pump was going bad, What I didn't know was that according to ford there isn't a way to pull the pan without yanking the whole motor out first. So my first question is anybody have any ideas on how to pull the pan without having to take the motor out. Second in the event that I end up having to pull the motor any tips on the best way to wrestle it out from under the hood, and best mount points for the cherry picker on this block. I'd also like to hear what you guys think about the chances of it not needing a rebuild. I have this gut feeling from talking to the lady that she drove it home after "it just started making that bad noise" rather than having it towed. Thinking about going to the jy and paying the $150 to pull a motor but I'm 50/50 on it because that's money I could use on other stuff.

yeah idk about that on but i tried pulling the oil pan on my 2.9 with the engine in and it was a nightmare i ended up putting it back on and pulling the engine
pulling isnt that bad just drop the trans crossmember and trans case for easy access to trans engine bolts
then remove trans the remove engine.
might not sound like the easyiest way but ive done it quite a few times and this way iis perfered by me.

as for the oil pumo itsself its pretty easy one the pan is off
but if its allready makin noise id say get a new engine
my new oil pump for 2.9l was 80$
