How the heck do you get to the top bolts on the front Diff?

I'm trying to remove the diff cover in the front to replace the 4wd sensor and harness, and can barely touch, let alone remove the top 3 or so bolts.

Skid is off, but how did any of you remove the top bolts? They are quite tight too.

Jack up front end of vehicle on body jack points. Axle will stay on the ground and give easier access to dig cover bolts.
