Transfer Case Removal

Wondering what the easiest way to drop my T-Case. I have to replace my main shaft. I have a manual Trans.... do i need to drop it at the same time?

Is the skid plate also the support for my T-Case?

drain your t-case from the bolt on the rear lower left corner, then disconnect your front driveshaft, and take out your rear at the t-case and most likely to get that off you'll have to disconnect the u-joint at the rear diff.....(assumng you have a slip yoke), you will also have to unbolt and remove the skid plate, and yes it does support the t-case and transmission.....then there are like six bolts around your t-case that connects it to the transmission, disconnect those......you will also need to disconnect the linkage to your four wheel drive selector.....then it should just slide off.

Be sure to support the transmission before you yank off the plate, but you already knew that though, didnt you?

The t-case only weighs about 80lbs so you can man-handle it on your back while under the Jeep. Don't forget to fill it with ATF when you install it.

I just took mine off about 2 weeks ago. These guys are right on. Make sure that you use a jack or jack stand under the tranny when taking off the skid plate. Also the bolts on top of the tranny that connect the t-case can be a real biotch to get off. To make it a little easier you can take the shifter plates off and get to them from the top. If you have a wratcheting wrench it could also cut down the time a bit.

I just got done taking mine out, you can get a little more clearance on those PITA bolts on top if you lower the tranny a bit. Also don't forget about the Speedo cable and the linkage for the shifter, you don't have to take the whole thing out but just make sure to undo the bolt that connects to the case. Good Luck-James
