cracked transfer case/disengage driveshaft?

my 1990 cherokee laredo has a cracked transfer case. split open pretty bad and chain is hanging out. its been sitting in a shop here in alaska for about 2 months now and they cant find a new case to fix. i need to move it to the next town over (2 hours away) and was wondering if anyone has any idea if its possible to put the transfer case in neutral, and disengage the driveshaft, making it a 2 wheel drive? or will this cause more damage? any way to still drive it with this problem? any help is appreciated guys!! i need to move it in the next week. thanks

You cannot drive the Jeep with a broken Transfer Case. Fix it or tow it.
