I got all the fluids, got under my jeep, and realized i have no idea how i am going to get these drain and fill plugs out that have square holes in them...They are alot bigger than even the 1/2' drive wrench i have

Not sure about the Tranny, I have the AX-15 in mine. But the Transfercase drain/fill plug is a hex bolt, I can't recall the size though.

Also, I don't know about everyone else, but the next time I do it, I'm going to take off the skid, or come up with a better plan than to just let the fluid drain into the skid. That was messy

EDIT: talking about the transfer case...

Dogman....tin foil is your friend in times like these. You can be creative with it and get the oil to go where you want.

Thanks! The dog is a purebred pitman. You get one of those by having a doberman as the father and a pitbull as the mother.

If I recall correctly my Dana 30 had a square plug.. but the 3/8 drive socket wrench with no socket fit perfectly.

10 mm hex on the xfer case. I use a humongous allen key.

3/8" square on the diffs- my 3/8 socket/extensions fit it perfectly.
