Default Change Oil Filter Housing Gasket

I have a 2001 F150 SuperCrew 4x4 with the 5.4 in it. I have a good size oil leak coming from the gasket where that housing meets the engine. Has anyone ever changed one? I've been told that you have to remove or move the front 4x4 diff to access it, but that doesnt seem right to me. Thanks in advance for your help!

have not been within 3 feet of the filter base on my 01 2x4 ot know if there is a gasket on it. but i know there is a gasket on the filter itself. is it possible that a gasket from a filter has come off and is causing the leak???
