That will make it totally useless. You will need to find a two wheel drive transmission and driveline, if you want to remove all of the system you will need to remove the front drive unit and keep the axle stubs in the hub assemblies to help keep the front bearing preloads set, then you may have some problems with the ECM not reconising the fact that it is now a two wheel drive. Seems like a real headache too me.
