Spud Shaft

With the transfer case pulled you can get to the empty transmission tailhousing and factory spud shaft. The tailhousing simply unbolts from the transmission, but you'll need a slide hammer with a 10x1.5mm adapter or bolt to pull the spud shaft. Anywhere from 2-4 quarts of tranny fluid will spill out, so be ready to catch it with a drain pan.
