I have an '83 K5 Jimmy running an N208 transfer case. My question is when I'm in 2WD is the front axle engaged or disconnected? In other words, in 2WD does the front axle freewheel? The reason I ask is because that's one of the differences between the YJ and TJ Wranglers, and welding the spider gears at the front of a YJ is fine because in 2WD you won't feel it, which is cool. I was wondering if perhaps the same applies to the K5s.
