If this is a AWD transfer case it will not work. I have never heard of anyone taking the carrier out, unbolt in the ring gear from it and then putting it back in to drive it, it should work but have never seen it done, if it does work it drive it with caution and not over 45 mph and even that might be too fast. Driving characteristics are going to change as it will be pulling the rig around not pushing, be prepared for steering changes as well. Just seems a little spooky to me. Maybe renting a rig might be safer?
