Ok, you cut the CV joint closest to the wheel. I have done this to the front of a 4x4 pickup on request from a customer, but on a truck (at least the truck I worked on) you have to take the splined nub, put it back through the bearing, and tighten the axle nut down. The axle nut holds pressure on the bearing and keeps it together.

Just wondering if you thought of this. No idea if the aztek hub assembly is similar.

Answered my own question.  Short-Short version. On Ramps, rear end up. and the front I had jack stands. I removed everything from the transfer case back. I used a 4" grinder ( with a built on shield, porter cable model, which kept from cutting into cradle ) to cut the passenger half shaft in half.  Then I used a floor jack and a block of to brace the diff.. Removed both bolts. I used a sawzall to cut the bands on the  remaining  half shafts , Did the ones on the diif first, then let her down slowly, ( becareful the gas tank is right there ), and fell right out. Used the saw again, on the large ends of the that was still on the wheels, get it just right and takes a few seconds. The bands and are stainless steel I believe. ( take 5 minutes to align that cut, just right, this will save alot of time ) After the bands broke, the half shafts slide right off. Just a heads up though, Have plenty of rags, grease will come out the boots.

Sorry to hear about DATEK's passing.  I understand that she had some radical surgery a few years back that gave you a few more years together.  What finally did her in?

Hey Chris - saw your question to Diceallion and can answer it, poor DATEK was done in by some dumbass snowplow driver in the lot she was parked in overnight. A horrible way for a great Tek to die :-(.

Yup, city plow totally took her out and did not miss an inch.  From back bumper to front and everything inbetween.  Even when the claim adjuster arrived, he looked at it for 30 seconds, then looked at me and said.... Sorry, its over.
