Use a extension from a 1/2" socket and ratchet, will fit right in.
Don't forget to do your diffs. also, 2.4 quarts for the t/case and 1.8 for each diff.
Also make sure to check the magnetic plus for metal chunks.

No metal chunks - a few tiny shavings. Drain plug was flush with the casting / came out and went in fine. Fill plug was sticking out 3 to 4mm - went back in the same - torque wrench suggested not going any tighter - anything to be concerned about ?

As longf as you are not leaking. If you are leaking, try some teflon tape and a little more torque.

Expedition Exchange, they have solid brass plugs with o-rings.

Should I run some kind of flush or solvent thru the diffs or t-case prior to draining. There is quiet possibly mud or water in the diffs from my last outing...

No, just drain and inspect the magnetic drain plug fefore refilling. A little magnetic mud is normal, if though you see checks of metal or shinning bearing material, then you might want to go to the heavier 85W/140 gear oil to prolong the t/cases life, same for both of the diffs.
