Front driveshaft removal

Hello,

I am trying to remove the front driveshaft(have the guibo out) to clean up the splines and lube them with some moly. The issue is, it is not coming out of the transfer case end. I pulled on it hard and no luck. Any slots that U can pry? Thoughts?

Thanks

Hmmmm, my front one came out easily. It was the rear that gave me a run for my money. Took a week to get that off (seriously) as it was frozen on the output of the TC. Had to destroy the centering sleeve to finally get it out.
