transfer case and differential maintenance?

I was getting ready to change the oil in my front differential and transfer case. I have already done the the rear differential, but was just under there looking and the front seems to be a little more difficult than the back. Would anyone mind telling what all I need to remove to be able to get to these? I had looked for a write up, but couldn't find one. Also what kind of oil is recommended for the transfer case? If anyone knows of a write up or has pictures they would be greatly appreciated.

for as i know, the front uses a hex key
the haynes manual says the front and the rear are the same in the procedures wise.
Un-screw, drain, fuel... same as a transfer case
