The rear diff fill plug is stripped and Im not sure how to get it off, it is cranked in there really really well, the front diff drain plug is also on its way to being stripped... what is the best way of getting it out without welding another bolt head on there?

pipe rench works good on those 24mm check plugs the drain will be different cause it has metal around it. or take your 6 point socket a new one and grind the bevol off of it so the whole thing is biteing the head of the plug

chilsle that thing if you can get a 6 point socket and an impacket on there
toyota has new drain plugs for about 3 bucks, they use an allan head. hopfull they hold up better.......oh and get the solid seal too.

When you get it off, go get some of those 3/8 drive plugs from Tarran at BCC, or AllPro etc... They wont strip out.

I already got another bolt from the dealer for it but I might go get the one you were talking about and use it instead, thanks for all the advise.

well I got both diffs done, For the rear I just filled it to spec from the manual through the breather and for the front, the casing around the drain bolt was bent in so that a socket wouldnt fit in and I sucked it all out through the check/fill bolt and then filled it to spec, Thanks for the Advice, does anybody have a toyota with the same stock transfer case and know how much oil there's takes?

the 10mm allen suck but if you change them use the steel crush washers not the alum and another thing wind up and rap the plug with a hammer(with a drift if you have too) to loosten it up works great
id rather be searching for a 24mm socket then looking and only finding a crappy allen bit,socket,.... cuz chances are the 24mm socket you can safely put a lot of pressure on easier ie breaker bar[cheers]
