Yes sir, just got done removing both. It needed a 30mm for the shock mount and a 13mm on the IWE end of the axle.

Took it for a test drive, drove like a perfectly good 2WD truck

I was able to spin the front axle, but it was hard due to the shot bearings in the front diff. Is there another way to check to be sure?

You don't want the FRONT driveshaft turning when your moving. when rolling forward, have someone look at the drive shaft... you should have the TRANSFER CASE disengaged..
