Front Driveshaft Question

I need to change my clutch but this is the first time i've messed with the front driveshaft on a newer model. Is it best to disconnect it from the front or at the transfer case ? If from the TC, is all I have to do is take out of the bolts ?

Sorry for not being around much in the last few months but the academy had me tied up every day. Feels good to be back though.

I've only ever taken my stock out out from the front first, then the back. The six bolts at the T/C end of it are all that holds it on, you should be good to go. It might be just as easy to to do the front as well, it's only 4 bolts and you're done. That way the whole thing is out of the way. Just make sure you mark the shaft, yoke and T/C so you get everything back together the same way it came apart!

You don't need to in order to remove the driveshaft, but I would imagine you mean to do the clutch. In that case you will have to.

Yeah I was talking about when doing the clutch. It looks like it's a PITA to do.
