5 minute job.

1) Pull the driveshaft.
2) Pry the seal out with a seal puller, or a flat screwdriver.
3) Press in the new one. I usually use the old seal as a driver for the new one.
4) Enjoy your favorite adult beverage.

There is no situation that cannot be improved with a small but well-placed explosive.

It looks like that knucle thing would be in the way or does the whole shaft come out of the transfer-case?

u can work around it with a regular seal puller

if u realy want to undo thos 3 bolt and take off the tailcone housing than fix it outside of vehicle.
