It helped to make the decision to take the front drive shaft off before I did it tonight actually.

YES! People 10 years later are still pulling the drive shafts out and are having issues taking out the 4 bolts by the double cardan - LIKE ME!

I don't have any issues using a 1/4" drive ratchet with a 5/16" socket. In fact I just used that combination a few days ago to pull the driveshaft prior to rebuilding the transfer case.

If there is anything you want to invest in is an 8mm ratcheting wrench. It is sooo much better access to the bolts at the Transfer Case than a socket and ratchet. I also find the easiest way is to jack up the driver side wheel, lay parallel with the jeep with your head against the rear tire. You shouldn't need to drop the skid to get at it.

Ive tried countless 1/4" drive rackets and sockets and gear wrenches. The only thing I have every been able to use successfully was a traditional combo wrench. I can use ratcheting stuff for about half the threads then I have to switch.
That's even with the skid plate dropped, having as much room to work in as possible.
