your going to need to suck it out with a pump. stupid set up it could be better to have more room so you could take the cover off!.

I was under the the truck looking at it and I think I could get all the bolts off but getting it put back on would be vary hard.

I have never used a pump befor any recommendations on witch one to buy?

X2 on the pump. You wont be able to get it all the way off. You can get the bolts out but them you have to pull the cover away from the diff, it wont just slide straight down...
