    4x4K20 is correct about the procedure to remove; however, I might add that taping didn't quite cover what had to be done to get mine to move. It took a BFH & BF chisle to get the job done.

    Thanks, one side came right off. The other took the BFH approach. I got the axle shafts off now. I can't believe how much crap came out on the long shaft side. How did you clean this out or did you? Thanks for advice.

    to clean out the axle tubes i took a long piece if 3/8 round stock and threaded one end.then i put a washer(about a inch around)on the threaded end and a nut on each side of the washer to hold it in place.you could just weld a good size washer on the end of a piece of round stock.then slide it in the tube making sure you don't push any crap in the diff.and scrap out the tube.if you do this often enough you won't get a massive build up of crap in there.this is the best tool if you run in the mud alot.
