I had to replace mine. It's pretty simple. There's no reason to unbolt the rear diff. All you have to do is compress the drive shaft a little bit and it'll pop right off the output shaft. DO NOT scratch or knick the machined race where the seal goes in the case. If you use those metal car ramps, it makes it pretty easy to get under there.
Mine went out when I got a little too aggressive with the powerwasher. Brute was covered in 2" of cement like mud.
i have seen the shafts almost frozen together, an have to really work on getting them to compress, be sure to clean an grease the splines good when you go back togrther. i ride mud an water mostly so i drilled the female splines an installed grease zerks on both front an rear
