i dont have a write up but i can tell you step by step what you need to do..

okay first you need to undo the linkages to the 4wd, take off front and rear driveshafts, and the three connectors on the t-case its self, after you have all of that done remove the four bolts in the middle of the t-case cross member then jack up the transmission pan with a jack and a block of wood (to distribute the weight evenly), un bolt the tc skid and put aside for later re install. okay now unbolt the trans mount and now your going to want to drop down the t-case by lowering the jack(so you have more room to get a wrench in up there on the top bolts of the t-case Hint Shorty ratchet wrenches are great for this task. un bolt the 6 bolts on the t-case and slide it off. its not heavy weights about 70 pounds, oh yeah i almost forgot drain the fluild out before doing all of the above. then to reinstall just do everything in reverse.

Oops, not a full removal, but it will get you close.
