Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

You can remove the driveshaft and just use it as a front wheel drive vehicle but that isn't going to change anything if you need a transfer case. The transfer case is still going to be in place with all internal components still moving as they normally would and power will still be going to the right CV shaft through the transfer case. Removing the rear driveshaft will take a little bit of the load off it but if there is an internal failure the transfer case is still going to need to be replaced.

I hope that helps! My goal is your satisfaction today. If you feel I've been professional and helpful, your 5-star rating at this time is most appreciated. However, if you still need my help you can reply back here and I'll respond as soon as possible! Thank you!
