2. 2 bolts.

The trick? You need a 3/8" or 1/2" drive 30" extension with a swivel U-joint socket on the end to get it on there from an angle. Then you hit it with your air ratchet or impact gun and zzzzp it comes straight out.

To put them in? Stuff a little wad of paper in the socket to secure the bolt and then line it up by hand in the hole and give it a few turns to keep it stuck in the socket nicely. Then when its in there nicely, hit it with the ratchet or gun to lock it down.

Of course you took out the transfer case FIRST right?
