Something is strange here.
If it is all stock, it should not have any spacers. spacers typically come with lift kits to help with the drive line angles.
The are probably rusted in place. A few things...
1. spray them with PB blaster and let them sit.
2. if you have a torch you can heat the bolts up then try to remove them
3. it will take a lot of elbow grease to get them out.... think in terms of a 2-3 foot breaker bar.
4. don't be surprised if you break a few or they spin in place, we can guide you through fixing that
5. SUPPORT THE TRANNY WITH A JACK STAND BEFORE TRYING TO DROP THE SKID. The skid holds the t-case, tranny, and engine where it all is. you need to support the tranny just in front of the skid with a jack stand. I even recommend jacking the tranny up an inch, then putting a jack stand in. this takes any weight off the skid plate. you do not have much room to work with on the tranny, figure it out.
6. unbolt the 3 nuts sticking down through the skid plate first. before doing anything else
7. read all of these numbers before starting
