Leave it in 4wd and take out the front axles, leaving the outer stubs for the knuckles... Can't tell how long the transfer gears will last but it would work for a while.


I know for the AWD legacy trannys there is a steel coupler you can buy to replace the viscous center diff and lock it in RWD. Still have to pull the front axles though.
