The fill/level plug is on the RH side of the rear of the transfer box.
When viewed from underneath, it is on the LH side of the hand brake drum.
The drain plug is the lower plug, the level fill plug is the upper one.

Hope this helps.
The torque setting for fastening both is 22 ft. lbs.

Soak it with some PB blaster and when you put it back together make sure you use Hylomar or plumbers tape so that the 2 dissimilar metals are not in contact with each other.
