    First mark everything so upon reinstsllation everything goes togther the same as it came out.
    Next unbolt the driveshaft from the rear diff and unbolt the carrier bearing, two bolts
    Slide the drive shaft out of the input shaft and work on it in a much more comfortable area.
    I recommend a ball joint press to remove the ujoints, the one autozone has has the perfect sized fittings to easily press the ujoints out.
    Press back in and reinstall

    Yes , remove the whole thing . I think it's 4 bolts in the front and 4 in the rear. Plus the two carrier barring ones . It's easier than it looks .

    Never mind about the 4 bolts on the front. You have a pre runner .
