Question about Ford Ranger
You should be able compress the driveshaft inward ( into itself ) enough to get it to drop out. ( be very careful with the U-joint endcaps -- if a cap comes off the U-joint it is a real pain to get all the needle bearings back in place ).

Disconnect the ground cable from the negative battery terminal, by using a wrench to loosen the retaining bolt and pulling the clamp off the terminal.
Raise the vehicle and support with jack stands placed underneath the frame.
Drain the transfer case. Locate the drain plug near the bottom of the transfer case. Place a waste oil collection pan underneath the plug and use a socket to remove it. Once all the fluid has drained out, reinstall the plug.
Remove the bolts that connect the rear driveshaft to the rear axle yoke using a socket. Lower the driveshaft, and slide it backward underneath the rear axle to disengage it from the transfer case. Remove it from the vehicle.
Remove the bolts that connect the front driveshaft to the front axle yoke using a socket. Lower the driveshaft, and slide it forward underneath the front axle to disengage it from the transfer case. Remove the driveshaft from the vehicle.
Label and disconnect the electrical wires and vacuum lines connected to the transfer case. Use masking tape and a marker.
Remove the transfer case shifter rod. Using needle-nose pliers, remove the clip that connects the shifter rod to the transfer case. Slide the rod away from the transfer case.
Position a floor jack underneath the transfer case. Raise it enough to take the weight of the transfer case off the transmission.
Remove the bolts that connect the transfer case to the transmission using a socket or wrench.
Slide the transfer case rearward to disengage it from the transfer case. Lower the floor jack, and remove the transfer case from the vehicle.
