Hey y'all, I'm back again with another probably overly simple question that I just cannot figure out/find a clear answer for.
I'm taking my rear driveshaft out of it's axle yoke to load the WJ on a tow dolly and drive it up to my family's farm so Pops and I can switch out my Dana 30 and 35 for a less busted Dana 30 and a 44a from a 4.7.
I've undone the bolts and taken the straps off the U-joint, but I can't seem to get the damn thing out of the yoke. I tried hitting it with a mallet, and nothing budged. I was a bit reticent to perform heavy percussive maintenance without consulting you fine folks first though.
I tried to push the shaft back into the TC to give myself play and work it out, but apparently I'm too small to actually make that work. Any suggestions?
Just your average, extremely unlucky, and broke college student/Jeep Enthusiast.
