Once you get the transfer case off, replacing the transmission's output seal is easy. Just pull the old one out (I think I used needle nose pliers) and gently tap the new one into place. Place a thin coating of grease on the inner rubber part that seals against the t-case input shaft so the input shaft can slip into it more easily with less likelihood of the process damaging the seal.

It is easy to remove after removing four bolts and disconnecting its shift mechanism from the tub underneath. You will also need an E-10 (maybe an E-12 but I believe it's an E-10) reverse torx bit for two of those four bolts. A transmission jack makes this job easier, especially for reinstalling the t-case to get it to line up properly.
