Kind of..lol I am going to drop the crossmember for sure to reach those damn top bolts but like a dumass I parked way to close to my tool box so I can't get the drawers open to get my damn wrenches out lol. Anyone remember off the top of their head what size the tcase bolts are that hold it to the tranny?

I'll be working on mine in 10 mins so text me any questions, or call. My old driveline is sitting on the shop floor.

FINALLY figured out my oil leaks. After a new valve cover gasket, oil filler cap, oil pressure sensor, oil filter adapter o-rings, oil pan gasket and rear main, and all new CCV Elbows and tubing, I was still leaking oil. I narrowed it down to coming out of the head gasket, which didn't make a lot of sense since there is no pressurized oil there.

Today I was replacing my air filter and I looked at the inside of the air-box where the front CCV connects, and low and behold, the port was plugged SOLID with oily crap. No oil on the old filters BTW. So I cleaned all of that out, degreased the block and took it on a 45 mile drive. Bone dry. It's about time.

Just went and bought spark plugs and wires at autozone. Then while I was down there, I picked up 4 pallets that were sitting in an empty lot. The company across the street puts them there all the time. And before I got there, a couple guys were loading some into the back of what looked to be a maxima lol.

Just filled the tank, and filled the washer with fluid, and mounted my hacked up bumper to hit the trail tomorrow!

Good info. I'm going to check mine tomorrow and see if that's where I'm leaking.
