Front drive shaft u-joints

I have never done u-joints it looks pretty easy, I need to do the front drive shaft, but it looks like I need to drop the t-case skid. Is there a write up for u-joints.
Thanks

Yep, no need to remove the skid. Just jack one front tire in the air (makes rotating the shaft easy), reach from the back of the skid with your 8mm ratchet, undo a bolt, rotate the shaft, remove the other 3 bolts in this manner. Front bolts are easy to reach.

Well actually instead of jacking one front wheel up in the air, I just remove the front connection first, use a rope to suspend it in the air. Then shift the t-case from N - 4wd, to lock the shaft in place so that I can remove the rear bolts.
