Automatic transmission swap

I've been following steps from a post that explains removal, but I didn't get too far. I can't get the knob for transfer case off. It looks like 2 pieces; knob and black sleeve that are fused together or something. When I try counter-clockwise to twist it, the knob and sleeve both turn a bit but nothing loosens. Amy idea?

That's good news, thank you. I am pre-planning the torsion bars. Is this what I measure on both sides before unscrewing or loosening?

Got it, thank you. Ride height is measured now after putting it back on the floor. To continue: the next step is to loosen what is pictured in my previous reply?
ok, I'm going to do this the right way which is what I should've done to begin with. I'm going to replace the torsion bar adjustment anchors and other parts on either end of the bars. I've been looking for 4x4 clubs and other resources. Do you have any place I should go for these replacement parts (bone yards out of the winter & salty road states) to suggest?
