I did remove all the bolts and the cross-member (the jeep I was taking the transfer case off was a Cherokee). If I had to guess what the issue was on splitting the case from transmission I would blame it on suction in the transmission shaft. 9/16 was the case bolts and the shafts were 5/16 I had to go buy a 6 point wrench to get one of the bolts off.
I got the case out and its sitting in the driveway I will install it tomorrow. I used a chisel as a wedge to split it from the transmission it worked great. I will let you know how the install goes. All I need now is a new CV joint on the drive shaft and I will be all set to do some 4x4. I am having a hell of a time finding the CV joint with out a drive shaft attached to it. I am going to check out a few local shops and see if they can get the part and repair the joint for me on Monday. In the mean time I will likely drive it with no front drive shaft.
