Dana 30 carrier removal help needed (Fort Worth)

I'm trying to install my Aussie locker in my D30 but I can't get the carrier to budge. Anyone near Ft Worth that could swing by and help?

First you will need to drop the tie rod from the drivers side knuckle. Then put a rag in between the ring gear and the pinion gear and rotate the yoke and it should push the carrier out. I am in Hurst if you need more help just PM me

Or you can use a pry bar too!

I've tried the pry bar method. I'll try the rags next, but I can't get to the Jeep right now. Thanks.

I got it! Put a tow strap around the carrier and hooked it to my friends JK to use the ratchet strap but when he put it in park it yanked right out. Nothing broke thankfully.
