On my 84 CJ w/power steering there is a boot at the end of the shaft going into the box. There is a metal ring or retainer clip that is holding the boot in the coupler. its hard to see if its full of mud like mine was. Clean it out really good and you will see what I am talking about. You can use a flat blade screw driver on the side of the coupler cause there are two "slots". Push the clip in and it should come out. Once the clip is out, I recall it should pull out of the coupler.

You may have to resort to taking the box out of the vehicle. Last time I did mine I could unhook it at the firewall, but ended up removing the box to undo the clamp on the box.

The steering shaft is also held in place by two plastic pins that keep the shaft from compressing. The pins are located about a 2 feet up the shaft from the box. drill out the pins and you can collapse the shaft. You will need to use some force to get it to collapse. Afterwards completely pull out the lower shaft and clean it up so installation is easier.
