    Very very simple. There are two plugs. One at the bottom of the case and one at the top. Take out the top plug first, then the bottom plug. Let the fluid drain out. then put the bottom plug back in, and refill the t-case with ATF until it's to the bottom of the fill hole, and put the plug back in. It's every bit as easy as it sounds.

    Yep! I use a sports drink 'squeeze' bottle (like you carry on a push bike).
    I screwed a 3/8 hose barb into the drink nozzle and fitted 12" or so of clear tubing onto it. This way I can turn the bottle upside down whilst laying under my Burb and squeeze the bottle to fill the T/fer case.

    MOVE AND SHOULD, USE THE WD-40. IF IT SHOULDN'T MOVE AND DOES, USE THE
    DUCT TAPE.

    Thats a good point. I failed to mention that it's kinda hard to get the bottle up there to fill. I actually used the pointy screw on tip thingy that comes on bottles of diff fluid. Worked amazing and screwed right on to the ATF bottle.

    can any one tell me how many quarts go in the transfer case? I am assuming the ATF is the same grade as whats in the tranny?

    Yes use the same ATF you would put in your transmission. I think it takes 2 to 3 quarts.
