I wish I had your nice gear oil pump, would've made my life so much better.
Stocking my tool chest one job at a time, so I'll probably have one eventually. Right now I have just about everything else, even was able to replace the front two wheel bearings!

That little pump is only $10 at the local auto parts; it has served me very well with other vehicles too.

getting set to rear diff first, and for first time on this. Dumb question, for the loosening direction , do we pull up towards the underside of the vehicle? or go the other way.
I plan to get a stubby hex + a cheater bar. Can I expect this to be a tough nut to break? Thanks.

rear diff pics

Completed job. First time at this type of maintenance. Thanks to the forum members. Here is my contribution. 62000 miles

Had an incline on the parking area so a couple of 2x10"s under the rear tires gave me some extra space for photos.

10mm stubby was just perfect for space. Needed a few hammer taps to get them to budge. Always seem to muck up the direction when lying down - thus the earlier comment. Direction - up and out.

500 ml came out - I let it drip for a good 30 mins. It was pretty black, fair amount of gunk on the magnet. Washer is not a crush type, just flipped it over. Both where in perfect condition. Pump kit is very slick, took about 25 pumps to fill. Oil in the line drains right back into the bottle when fill was complete.

Next up the transfer case and then based on the the CVT sticky maybe time to inspect that for first time also.

Nicely done. There was indeed quite a bit of material captured by that magnet!

Changed Tcase oil myself. Thanks all members for the good write-ups.
As per advice from Tigger57 I removed an extra bolt which made a job slightly easier (original post and pictures here ).
