Well, you'd have to take out the: transfer-case, CV-joints, driveshaft, and some other parts. IMO it would be a huge job but if you want your X bagged bad enough you'll do it. Not worth the labor IMO.

Apart from what's mentioned above, You'd need new spindles and new rotors, wheel bearings(and all the little extras in there nuts/grease caps/seal/etc). I'm not too sure about how to deal with the transfer case e.g. disconnecting it etc.

Leave the transfer case in and just remove the front driveshaft. If you really want to remove the transfer case you'll have to take the tranny to a shop and have a new output shaft put in, and get a new rear driveshaft. You could remove the switch from the dash easily so no one would even know you had it in there. Now if you wanting to lay the frame you'll probably have to take the x-fer case out since it hangs down (slightly) below the frame rails.



Good Luck

my 95 Explorer is 2WD unless I switch it into 4X4. So if yours is the same. Why change it?


No weight of front axle, less resistance without CV shafts, better mileage, you can lower it more........
