Kens04 is on a distinguished road

I want to remove the driveshaft in their lot to save myself $80. I know to remove the four bolts at the pinion flange and slide the slip yoke out of the back of the tranny. Some info I found on removal says to jack the vehicle, is this necessary? Do I need to have the parking brake off and vehicle in neutral, in which case I would chock the tires?? And I read SOME trans. fluid will come out when I pull the yoke, how much fluid are we talking here? Please let me know if Ive missed anything. Oh yeah, how much is this thing gonna weigh, 10-20lbs, thats my guess.
