Default How to jack up my engine?

I have a mustang gt, 94 with a 5.0 engine. Currently trying to get to the oil pan to change the gasket. Any idea's on where to start? I've searched for about a week and haven't found much online.

Get out the cherry picker and pick it up. You won't have to remove the hood that way if you are careful everything goes smooth......

Being more specfic, take the tale pipes off the headers/manifolds.
I would drian/remove the radiator.
Then remove the motor mounts.
That should get you room to access the oil pan.
