It's always best to subscribe to the "Bigger Pry-Bar Theory" when trying to remove the axle stub from the front diff.
    I replaced my CV boots recently and removed both half shafts by lightly tugging on them. They came out very easily. Nothing broken, no problems, no leaks after. 4wd works great.

    I'm having a time just getting the dust cover off the hub. Not seeing where it separates...?

    You may have to use a cold chisel and a rubber mallet. (You COULD use a thin bladed screwdriver, but not being as wide as a cold chisel, be even MORE careful not bend the cover) Work your way around the cover. Just get it lightly separated in one spot, and move directly opposite on another spot directly opposite the cover. Do it in stages...DONT try to get a huge gap all in one spot. Work it off. Take your time.
    Also, hit it lightly...They are easy to bend.
    Make sure you coat the edge that slips into the hub with anti-seize before reinstalling it...Even if you live in a non-rust area....Should make it easier to pull if you ever need to again.

    I'm going to get this done this weekend. Just noticed a tear in both axle boots. I was wondering about replacing the transfer case seals at the same time. Does anyone know the exact part? Or have any other recomendations of what to replace? Thanks for this write up.

    Don't bother on the differential seals unless they're actively leaking, replaced a lot of these and its a non issue. May as well change the differential oil as your going to lose some anyway when you pull the shafts.
