Mine's 5'-4" and 120 and likes to forge hot metal so don't give me that "too petite" s***. Hand her a two pound sledge and let her wreck something and she'll be hooked.

Your build looks like it's going well.

Maybe I'll get a BFH from tractor supply today, just for her! After dealing with my jeep addiction for almsot 2 years, I think some rubbed off on her. She told me a few weeks ago that she wants her own wrangler for college. And thanks for the kind words!

My buddy drove me 30 min to the driveline shop. Guy told me it'd be $70. Just like I was quoted on the phone. But I also need the rest of the CV assembly. He also told me that they cut the entire yoke off and weld on a new one, which I wasn't aware of. Wanted to charge me $60. So now I must wait till my CV socket arrives and then I can bring it all there. : For now I'll be shopping around online for a cheaper yoke and cheaper service. I drive 2WD anyways.

Got my last pieces for the t-case. A little progress made today. Two other obstacles still remain. Unbolting the old t-cse. And installing new nutserts. Also debating if and what color I should paint the t-case. So im planning what needs to happen after the swap is done. To do list:
- New swaybar links (discos)
- Rear pinion seal
- Patch up some rust ( under tailight, rear rollbar mount, driver fender)
- tune CB
- paint underbody, floor, fenders, rear bumper.

Waiting for an extra hand with the tcase, damn retaining rings suck to install. In the mean time, I tried tackling old tcase removal. Spent 30 min getting one nut off. 4 more to go. And they all seem impossible to reach. I lowered the tranny so much that it was hanging for a moment (on accident). Considering mech doing it, would just save time. Depends what he'll charge me. Ahh... its 80 degrees outside and I cant drive. FML.

I found that the 2 top nuts were the hardest, with the top passenger being the PITA everyone described... and then some.

Get a breaker bar... or better yet, a hollow metal pipe. That should be all you need to get the leverage to break the others.

Depending on how old the jeep is, the t/c might be rusted in place... mine's a 93, and like I said, it took a 1200lb come-along and 2 pipes to get it off.

I don't expect yours to be as difficult.

Put your jack under the tc to help hold it in place.

Problem is, I can't even get up there! I lowered the tranny as far as possible and couldn't fit the wrench up top.

It's probably the input shaft snap ring, if it's the first one you took off.

Looks strange though.

Depends, how many snap rings did you take off?
Only 1 was needed to crack the case from what I recall.

I only took off 2. But the other one looked different. Sorta like yours... which I can't really see.

is it larger or smaller?
what size is it?

There are 2 on the input shaft. 1 holds the input gear in place, the other is the low range gear snap ring.

Looking at my pics from my swap, I see that I removed 2 snap rings, but I can only remember the one. The 2nd is much larger, but doesn't look like yours.

Did you completely remove the rear external housing? I think there's a snap ring there.

I remember that when I did my SYE I ended up with an extra snap ring..

So if you got 2 (maybe just one, I dont remember) on, and that t-case shaft doesn't move you should be good
