Ok, once and for all, please explain plainly for everyone why it is not good to remove the front driveshaft off of a 249(AWD) transfer case. And please explain for everyone what happens inside the case if you remove it. I found this:
AndyZJ said:My whole thing with removing the front driveshaft is that it causes uneven load on the chain and output shafts. I've known a few cases where the Tcase has basically self distructed as it is still sending load to the front output yoke where there is nothing there. It binds up and then the chain becomes floppy. I'm pretty sure that its also not good for the VC since since it is always then sensing a variance in load from the front end. If you plan on using the 249 again, then its really not good for the Tcase.
