Here's a good write-up, and a good site:
Jeep.US41.org/transfercase
Like he said in the write-up. DO NOT drop the skidplate. Just let it drain on top of it and clean up with rags later. Same goes for changing tranny fluid.

If in doubt about how old it is I would change it. Sticking your finger in the fill hole will tell you if it's full, but it's kind of hard to tell the condition by looking at your finger. I believe the manual says to change it every 60K.
