It's an All-Wheel Drive vehicle with individual wheel speed sensors, a Traction Control System and a transfer case with a differential built in to it. Why would you remove the drive line? It isn't designed to run that way.

If you have no 3rd or 4th, (I assume it just goes to neutral) you have a Transmission that failed.
