How do you figure that? The front drive shaft on that model is decoupled in 2wd so nothing is gained by removal other than easier oil filter access (as someone mentioned ) and making vehical a bit lighter too from loss of driveshaft weight.

As the rest of my post said, that was what I was told when I asked the same question about my '81 CJ-7. A Jeep specialist (not at a dealer) confirmed it and said something about unbalancing the main shaft and bearings inside the TC -- he showed me the blowup-schematic and how he explained it made sense, then. Never did remove the front shaft and never had any problems with it.

What kind of 4x4 switch do you have on the dash? If it has an "Auto4hi" position, don't remove the driveshaft, if it just has 4hi, 2hi, 4lo...removing the driveshaft is ok, but won't do anything for your gas mileage. It doesn't turn in 2hi if you don't have the auto t/case.

It has the 4 switch system (auto4x4) and I cant find a TCCM anyplace around the area in indiana. I've even tried the national locator system.
