Hello and welcome to JustAnswer, My name is XXXXX XXXXX X will be assisting you
Do you see where is connect to the Transfer case...Do you see the bolts to the Flange on the Transfer case?
I just looked it up and the Tranfer case side it a Boot clamp... Here is the removal instructions:
I think if you remove the boot clamp, it will slide right off
I havn't removed the boot clamp yet> It appears that there is not enough room to move the drive shaft foward to disengage the spline from the transfer case.
Have you lowered the exhaust crossover pipe?
No, why is it nessessary? Do you remove the two bolts from the header to move the exhast out of the way?
Yes, if you remove the exhaust you will have enough room to drop the driveshaft
Do you see the removal instructions above?
Is it nessessary to do anything ot the rear drive shaft prior to working on the front drive shaft? That was part of the instructions in the Haynes manual.
No, you can leave the rear intact
We are going to give that a try.
Ok, Have I answered all of your questions tonight?
