Searching for certified Jeep mechanic I have one Question to ask

all I need to know if the whole transfer case has to be slip apart in order to pull out the drive shaft? I have to replace the seal but my mechanic said it looks like the transfer case has to be opened up..

The t-case doesn't have to be opened to pull the drive shafts but it might have to be in order to change an output shaft seal.

I'm really not sure, I wouldn't think you'd have to crack open the case just to swap a seal but Chrysler has made a few design flaws IMO.

^^^ Yeah I figured you were talking about an ouput shaft seal. That pic is your front output shaft leaking, no?

Like I said, the drive shaft itself (front or rear) can be removed without doing anything to the transfer case.

But that seal swap is something else entirely - so it could very well require pulling the t-case, opening it up, and replacing the seal.
