I would think that it would decrease the rolling friction and improve the
gas mileage a bit, but your transfer case might get damaged -- I somehow
remember asking that question and getting that answer about my '81 CJ-7 in a
bulletin board back in the late 80's. I can't remember the reason(s) given.
This Jimmy gets 10mpg right now if I am lucky, ever since it ran outta gas
about a month ago, its puttered and given me a cylinder number 4 misfire
I've ruled that down to the fuel injector clogged, I ran techron through it
for 5 tanks and no results so I'm trying other methods to increase fuel

I was also referring to the front shaft. On the ZR2 and (I think) the
AutoTrac units there is a CV joint on the t-case end of the DS. Not
sure if it's a slip-yoke or it's held in with a snap-ring like the CVs
for the front axle...
I've been told check the fuel filter, but I cannot even get to it without
removing the driveshaft to the front end.
And I dont have a fuel pressure gauge, plus I have a constant misfire code
on cylinder 4 that I cannot get to go away thats what makes me think its the
I've replaced plugs, wires, cap, rotor, and ran bottles after bottle of
techron through it.
errr-- might want to learn something about transfer cases, first.
There won't be any damage whatsoever. There also won't be any
improvement in mileage, other than the .001mpg from not carrying around
the 10 pounds.
