Front Drive shaft/tcase

Hi folks, I'm trying to remove the front d shaft for ujoint replacement. Can't seem to get it to slide out of the tcase. I don't see clips or bolts. I hope the shaft isn't retained with something inside the tcase.

thx, joe

Chrome strips around the edges of your doors? How cool is that?

Just remove the bolts & u-joint straps at the CV near the t-case out put.
It's much easier that way.

It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president."

Thanks guys, once I used a flashlite and looked myself, I could see the issue. I forgot that I shouldn't rely on what my "professional mechanic" cousin has to say lol
