Over all i'd say it'd be a big pain in the ass. replacing the gasket isn't hard once you get to a point where the pan will come off.

but removing everything to get to it would be a bitch. i could be completely wrong but i think you'd have to remove quite a few of your front wheel drive components. especially since our tacomas have a fairly heavy duty front wheel drive set up. if you were 2wd i think it'd be much easier.

just my initial thoughts. i'd look in the fsm and see what procedure they have

+1.....I do believe that you have to drop the front diff to drop the pan.....mine is seeping and not leaking yet. Not looking forward to that

I can't speak with certainty on a '98 but on the 01-04 Tacos... there is no gasket. They use a high-grade silicone caulk or something. Had mine redone recently and yeah, you have to remove the front diff.
