2006 Armada Drive Shaft removal

My front u joint needs to be replaced. I have the truck jacked up. I've removed the four bolts at the rear diff. Is there a secret to get drive shaft out? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Of course I found this Sunday and I'm supposed to go into work tomorrow.

Before you remove the drive shaft put paint match marks so you bolt the flange back in the exact position that it came off.
After removing the bolts tap on the flange with a hammer to loosen it from the differential.

Follow up question.
Now that I have the driveshaft out, should I replace the rear U joint as well? It seems to be in good shape.
