have you bolted it up to the transfercase yet. You might try bolting it up & then start pulling it. It is just stiff. You might try putting some wd-40 right there to see if that helps get it going.

The prices are just crazy. I didn't think about wd40. I'll give that a try, I just want to get this stuff done lol. On a positive note bodylift is done. Pics will be up soon. Looking for 35's still.

Hey guys thanks for all the help with the driveshaft problem. I soaked it in penetrating oil and hit it with a rubber malet and out it came. So finally the ranger has 4 wheel drive again lol
