the kick has a slipyoke so if you unbolt the rear flange the shaft will come right out. Can't recall that he owners manual said about it.. IIRC it said to put transfer case in neutral and tranny in park, npothing about driveshaft removal.
I worked a deal with the guy so he could tow it home. He was willing to help me get it out fast so I'll either drive up and get the thirds or he will drop them off in a few weeks. I'm a LONG way off from getting my rear hybrid so the gears aren't an absolute necessity within the next week or so...
It's on it's way. The guy picked it up this morning. He brought down a tow dolly so we just rolled the 'kick up onto it, put the T-case in neutral and transmission in park. Everything seemed fine. The guy lives about 3 hours from here. Let's hope there's no problems.
I'm going up in a couple of weeks to pull the third members.
