I looked closely at the pic, and a good allen socket should work just fine on that, after you tap in into the plug with a hammer until it bottoms out. Looks like the wrench wasn't all the way in, and you only stripped the outer half or so

Any machine shop should be able to get that out for less than $30. Maybe a couple bucks more since theyll have to do it on their back, but its a super easy, 30 second job for a shop that knows what they are doing.

Had the same problem when I changed the fluid on my wife's WJ. Here's what I did:

Get a drill bit that fits in the center of the rounded out plug (3/8 IIRC), coat it in grease the drill the center out. The grease will help prevent metal shavings from falling into the t-case.

Took the largest easy out that I could fit and removed it using an open ended wrench.

try a punch and a hammer. or use a dremel to slot it and tap with a flathead.

I found someone who is a very competent mechanic (Helicopter and heavy equipment mechanic) that will weld a 10mm allen driver onto the plug.
Got a new plug today and problem is most likely going to be solved.
Thanks all for info.

Enjoy the weekend!
