I like to pull the motor, trans and t-case all in one piece then separate them on the floor. Otherwise a long extension (I have a 24" extension for that kinda' stuff) and socket works IIRC. I don't recall anything being really in the way otherwise.

yep, what nick said. I bought the longest 1/2 extension that sears had. I might also have to use a second, shorter one to clear the back of the transfer case. Put a socket on one end and a breaker bar on the other. Lefty loosey.

I Just pulled mine and used a long extension and a breaker bar. The Drivers side was harder, maybe because the exhaust is on that side and the bolts got "heat treated" for 20 years.

Are you having trouble getting them loose or just reaching them?
