The squiddd just got a 2011 4x4 and some one buggered the drain plug the head was stripped but that’s not the problem it just spins in the hole and he can’t get it out. I think we are going to have to drop the pan. Has anyone tried this before and what problems did you have any advice would be helpful.

Do you have to jack up the engine bolts that are hard to get at that kind of thing any advice would be greatly appreciated

If it's a 4X4 drop the front diff,then the pans not to bad to pull. 7 bolts hold the diff in,4 are easy to get at,the 3 on the top of the diff are a bit harder to get to,but as long as there's no long tube headers in the way,they aren't all that bad to remove.
