White kind of vehicle is it

Disregard I see it now


no- it will cost you- big time- that "4X4" isn't lookin' so cool now, is it?


you can take one of the drive lines out to make a 2 wheel drive but the transfer case is wear both the drive lines come from so I doubt it would help


It would cost more to repair a transmission because you tried to by- pass a transfer case than it would to just buy a new one.
