Rear Driveshaft Removal

Well im in the process of dropping the tranny i got everything rdy to go down except the rear driveshaft. I cant find a combination that will fit to take those god danm torx bits out. Anyone that has done it what did you use, i belive its a T47 ? but i tried a T47 with a ratchet and it hits the driveshaft whitch prevents me from turning the ratchet , i tried using a Allen that fit but that looked like it might strip it. I cant seem to find a T47 Key.

Can you not move the shaft aside to get the tranny out? 2 piece shaft?

its a 2 Piece shaft with a slip yoke , I dont think i have enough room to pull it back to take it out the slipyoke ? Do i have to disconnect the piece that connects the 2 driveshaft pieces together from the frame and then do something ? How can i move it aside when its connected at both ends ?

I would think that if you had the shaft disconnected at the transmission, removed the carrier bearing from the truck and pushed the whole setup aside that you could get the tranny out, especially with bigger cab or longer bed....

edit: sorry I misread, perhaps you could disconnect the carrier bearing and slide it out that way, it's probably going to be pretty heavy and might be awkward, but it's worth a shot instead of stripping or rounding off those bolts at the rear
