Transfer Case Draining

What do you folks do as far as being able to collect the draining fluid out of the transfer case? Do you fellas drop the skid plate? That seems like a ton of work-- or do you just let it drain onto it and sop it all up?

Thanks

The skid plate has a convenient indent and hole right below the drain plug so I just let it drain out of there and wipe it clean after

Cut a plastic bottle to channel the fluid into a drain pan.

This may not work for your application, since I have a YJ with a D300 TC.

I use a disposable aluminum cooking tray, I’m able to bend it enough to catch the gear oil and then I transfer it into an oil pan. I hate the smell of gear oil, and letting it drip on your skip plate and wiping it up, had my garage smelling horribly for days.

let it drain.. The little that gets in teh skid plate is not a huge worry..



I use to just jack the front up a little higher and this way it directs the oil out and over that lip. Or a simple piece of cardboard to make a ramp out...

You could also go in threw the fill hole with a 10 dollar advance auto pump and pump out as much as you can then open the drain plug if there is no hole in the skip plate for the oil to drain. Then put rags on the skid plate before you open the drain plug. saves time with cleaning up after a real mess if there is no drain hole in the skidplate.

HD aluminum foil can be easily formed into a combination catch basin/funnel that will drain its ATF into a bottle.

When you have a choice, buy American made.
