Oil Pan Replacement Option?

I saw this advertised in Diesel Power Magazine and instantly thought it might solve the expensive problem of replacing the oil pan. It says you can remove the crossmember and it will support the drivetrain from your frame rails. Im hoping this is the solution to our rusty oil pan woes.

Im pretty sure Cuda Jim is going to chime in here soon.
But I think the Jack is not the problem in our trucks to change the oil pan, is the crossmember, you need to cut it (is possible without harm anything as I have read) and then weld it again.

that tool is for removing the transmission crossmember, to remove the oil pan you either pull the engine or cut out the crosmember, if you have an IFS front end you would have to dis assemble the I beams and than cut the crosmember.
