Default How to remove front 4x4 axle shaft?

Hey folks...

Any idea on how to remove the front axle shaft that provides power to the front diff from the transfer case?

I have removed about 6 bolts that hold it to the transfer case, and I have removed the bushing guard and popped two pins that were compressed on the front diff side and I was able to disconnect the shaft from the front diff but cannot get it to dislodge from the transfer case.

Any ideas?

FYI: Its a 2000 Ranger, 3.0 v6, 5 speed manual, 4x4.

Already tried that... Still stuck, and feels like something is holding it in place... I could roll the truck before disconnecting the front end and it will still turn the transmission.
