It should just slide out. You have to take the bolts off at the diff side first.

Dont tap on the u-joint caps - they need to be pressed out with the yokes properly supported. If you just want to pull the driveshaft out of a 2WD transmission, then unbolt the flange at the rear diff, drop it down and the splined slip yoke will pull right out of the transmission. Depending on the angle of the trans, be prepared to catch some oil. This might be a good time to invest in a shop manual.
