How in the world does this thing come out? I am baffled. This is the short shaft that connects the drive shaft from the transfer case to the winch. I have removed both of them but cannot figure out how this part comes out from the frame.
Thanks. She has been sitting in same spot for 13+ yrs and there are a lot of parts stuck together. I hit it with a little PB Blaster and will take another look at it one night this week.If removing the bolt that obviously replaced the shear pin work somebody must have opened up the the front crossmember. It is possible to pull the winch off with the shear pin. The front U joint would just slide off the splines for the spud shaft if it is not rusted together.
