Not all that hard bro. just need to remove the transfer case and front drive shafts and diff. You will need a rear driveshaft from a RWD GC tho, its a little longer

Jeff makes it seem a lot easier than it is, but Im sure its possible especially if you have two cars you are swapping over. You would need dealer programming once its done, but differentials, drive shafts, and transfer case is basically all there is to it. I'd be down to help out.

Its a little more in depth then just swapping parts to a rwd. you'd need the center consul and all the electronics too, and having them activated in the ECU.

Going to rwd from 4x4 would mean turning off the 4x4 systems in the ecu along with ditching the parts I mentioned above

That's what I was saying dealer programming. But I know a guy in Cali who can set you guys up.
