can you top the tcase off by filling the transmission or only by using the fill plug on the tcase?


can't get the fill plug off for the life of me and i need my wheels back. i just did a flush/filter/new cooler.


thanks
Sean

T-case and transmission do not share fluid.

Yes, same fluid type, but there is a seal in the transmission that seals against the input shaft of the transfercase. Transfercase is a standalone unit as far as fluid is concerned.
