What would happen...
 
..if I pulled the front drive shaft to run on a 2wd dyno? If i turned off the trac control it shouldnt care about the rears spinning,right? the closest awd is at a porche dealer 3hrs away, dont think they would want this there & a 2wd is down the street :cool:

(sarcasm/) Catastrophy, explosions, 2012 (/sarcasm)

I'm pretty sure it's not too good to your transfer case, but it won't hurt for short term.

can't promise.

I've seen a couple videos of AWD SRT8s that pull the front drive shaft.. Not sure how bad it is

Pretty sure with the NV245 the jeep wouldn't move.

I think you have to remove the T-case motor too and you should be good.

I'm not positive but I am pretty sure you have to remove it

RDP Motorsports left my driveshaft on and just pulled the transfer case motor and it worked. That said my transmission failed 1 week later. HE turned off tq management, so maybe the dyno had nothing to do with it

Whoa! They completely turned off TM or they reduced it?

Any other experience's with this? I pulled mine to change the starter, and the front u-joint is nowhere near smooth. I'm thinking of taking it to a shop to see if they can put a different end on it so it can be changed like normal ones,but i have to be able to drive it. I'm thinking maybe pull the abs(or is it trac) fuse so it doesnt know... what do ya think??
