so I got the tools the fluid and started, got the drain plug free but did not drain, went to the fill plug, the thing will not even budge, so now I m stuck, can't get the fill plug off so I can't drain the thing, can anyone recommend something here, even tried removing the battery to get some more room to us a longer bar, but there is'nt enough room under there to move the bar, I do not want to have to take this thing to the stealership!!

Yes you need to put it up on a lift or something. And it is probably a good idea to check the fluid level before you drain the transmission. Also it is next to impossible to replace the fluid without a gear oil pump.
