To completely remove it you would have to remove the front axle and the transfer case and then install a 2WD front axle and transmission. That would be a big, expensive job with no benefits other than a slight increase in gas mileage.

What exactly did you have done to your Explorer?

I just took out the front driveline when the transfer-case's viscous clutch went away and locked it into full-time 4X4, and was that way when the engine finally went away at 236K.
