    Do you cut the clamps on the rubber boot and slide it apart?

    Does anynody have any pics &/or instructions for removing the front drive shaft from the NP 246?

    Cut the clamp then use a wire tie to replace it after you reassemble it.

    Any I've seen, you take the 4 bolts out of the flange on the transfer case and the 4 bolts out of the yoke on the front differential.Compress the shaft by prying it out of the front diff. No need to take the shaft apart.

    This must be a 1998 and newer thing or 246 transfer case specific. no bolted flange from the transfer case. All the other transfer cases I had were as you described.

    My newest service book is a 1996 so it didn't show anything applicable.

    Why do they take something that works and change it?

    the setup is basicly the same as far as i know,the 98 could be the same on both ends(no flange)
