      Propshaft removal

      I need advice on how to remove the drive or prop shaft and wondering how to turn the shaft to get to all six bolts. I tried neutral gear but still not able to turn the shaft. How much force is needed or what is the trick? The rear wheel are in the air and the front on ramps.

      All 4 tires have to spin free - or at least 1 on each end of the car -

      Turning the driveshaft spins the transfer case - and there is not a clutch in it to allow the rear diff to spin without the front diff spinning. You could just have 1 front and 1 rear wheel off the ground and spin the driveshaft (in neutral)
