I'm at the point where I need to remove the seal though and I'm having such a hard time with it.. I've been using a flat head screw driver and a hammer to try get under the metal to push out the seal but it's on there really tight (I'm not hitting super hard because I don't want to harm the transfer case itself), none of my screw drivers fit though.. Is there a way to do it from the inside of the seal? Like fitting in a screw driver and pulling it out while not harming the transfer case spline? Am I missing something?
Ya dont do that. you need to pull it out. Get something with a 90 degree or something curved in to pull it out corner by corner. What you really want is a seal puller, They sell them at any auto parts store for 5 or 6 bucks
I just want to know if that's the right part because it doesn't look like the one I pulled out.
I brought it to them and everything. But it's the only rear output seal they had.
EDIT: Also I would like to make sure I got the right ATF. I bought Pennzoil ATF. There was also a Pennzoil ATF +4 and other weird stuff that I didn't know what it meant, so if anyone could just verify for me I'd really appreciate it.
Thanks Max hopefully the one I'm getting is compatible. If not I'll be buying online I guess.
Would anyone know if the ATF I picked up is ok for the Jeep? I don't want to blow anything up.
EDIT: I'm seeing people say that it doesn't really matter what I put into the Transfer Case, but then seeing people recommending ATF +4, I don't even know what I have, it's just ATF with no numbers on it. What the heck did I pick up
Hey guys, just an update: everything is done!
So far no leaks and everything is running well. Hopefully it stays that way.
Just want to thank everyone that helped this noob figure it out. I feel like a king not gonna lie, even though it was a really easy thing to do hahah

Before I did a D30 oil seal and didn't clean off some old rtv and it failed.
I did rub the seal and the inside of where the seal goes really well, hopefully it's good enough to keep the seal in place, only time will tell.
Anyways now I've got a new problem.. Seems like when I put the Jeep in reverse it pops out of gear. This happened before in the Jeep but we got it fixed and I guess it's happening again.
Maybe it's time for a new thread though and honestly it isn't all that bad, maybe when I get more fed up with it because this seems like a tougher job that maybe I shouldn't do yet.
