    I need to drop my t-case with the spacers to help solve a post-shackleflip + ord zero rates install vibe problem. problem is, the front drive shaft hits the exhaust x-over when I do this. Is there any reason why I can't, for the time being, remove the front drive shaft? Will the rig be driveable in 2wd mode still? Just thought I'd ask before I try it...I dont see a problem...but I am not a tcase guru either...

    I need to get that stupid exhaust x-over pipe fixed...

    yes you can. I did for a while in my 79 when I swapped axles, and I also did the lock the hubs and use the front while I had no rear driveline( low range+ railroad tracks= driveline bails out)[​IMG]
