TCase Removal, WTF?

Attempting to remove my TCase and I am stuck. I removed the 4 bolts and nut per the manual, along with the bolt next to the hi/lo shifter. All linkages, wires, vents etc are disconnected. The problem is that the tcase won't budge, any ideas?

Might be stuck on the input shaft that comes from the transmission? you give it a nice hit with a rubber mallet yet? I can't think off the top of my head but last time I did one I thought there was 2 nuts that faced the other way along with the 4 or so bolts that hold it to the tranny.

Transfer case mounts disconnected?
Cross Member removed?
Have it lowered so the shift lever is clear of the tunnel window?
More than likely, the mating surface is just holding fast.

It does take a bit of prying to get it to break free.

I remove the cover plate and pull the input shaft and gear-makes for a hell of a lot easier install as well. I've seen them where the Brits have used silicone between the tcase and transmission face. I guess they do this incase they ruin the input shaft seal which is easy to do but make removal a bitch. There is a stud on most on the left side that the ground cable bolts to-that stud usually has a second nut underneath the cable that may be holding you up.

Finally got it out. Took a lot of coaxing with the improper tools.

Time to re-gear to 1.4 gears!

He never would have got it out if that were the case.

Time to re-gear to 1.4 gears!
regearing the T-case? Just the low side or installing a disco/higher high gear ratio T-case?
I have a dead Disco T-case in my basement that I'd like to fix and get a lower low gear ratio, but so far I did not find source any part at a price that fit my wallet. (that's not even considering the time it'll take of course! ). Seems like the cheaper approach will do lower diff gears and higher high gear ratio.

I have a Disco 1.2 case and am swapping in Defender 1.4 gears. My truck was too sluggish rolling on 35"s.
