Differentials/transfer case drain/fill plugs

Are the drain & fill plugs on the differentials and transfer case 8mm allen?

Yes. Did mine on Sunday for the second time. The Front & Rear differential plugs can be difficult to remove as they are spec'd for 44 ft. lbs.

I replied in the DIY thread, but yeah, remove the plate if you have the ORII package.

I just drive up onto 4 Rhino Ramps that are spec'd for the weight. Then I set jack stands for safety and use a crawler - there's plenty of room.
