Knock the roll pin out out next to the front differential and it'll slide back and out. You'll need to remove the center console, maybe skid plate, and maybe the front axle.

Yes sir. You can search on here and find a downloadable manual to help you out. Check in the signature of teamhog I think maybe.

Re: Driveshaft removal

You won't have to remove the front diff. But before you put it back together, be sure to slide the driveshaft forward, past the front axle splines (not on them)...then slide the rear yoke over the trans output shaft. It will slide to the rear far enough to be able to put the front yoke on the front axle input shaft.

Re: Driveshaft removal

Before you remove the shaft make sure your drive shaft shop can even balance it. I broke the weld on the rear yolk ( 2 weeks out of warranty and it was clearly a bad weld and not abuse ). It was easy to remove without that piece attached but did not go back in so easy. My local shop put in better tubing than factory but they did not have the correct splines to balance. I thought that was odd, but anyway I do not notice it being a problem. Also be patient with the role pin when you are driving it out - I used a 1/4 long extension with a tiny socket on the end that was a little smaller than the roll pin after soaking it all with PBblaster. Bottom line, if you don't have some serious vibration in that shaft I would find a better mod to spend your time on.
