Imma CJ guy, I know you cannot do that with CJs with QUADRATRAC, Nor can you put locking hubs on them. They won't even move if you do this. Their transfer case transfers the torque to the front end. There's Nothing to do except rotate a "Dead" Axle or yoke. Much like having a standard axle and dropping one wheel off in a hole.I think yours works the same. To be absolutely POSITIVE, call a Jeep Dealer (I do not trust "Hearsay" Either!
