I'm no TC expert, but if you pull the front driveline, in theory the chain should no longer go around in the TC. The chain is fixed to the front PTO, separated from being driven by a sliding coupling (for lack of technical terms) on the output shift in the TC. No driveline, front PTO disconnected from power, no chain spin...

But maybe you're asking a different question - can you pull the TC out and connect the transmission directly to the rear axle(?). That answer would come from a transmission / driveline expert.

Anything is possible though, right?

Happy Thanksgiving!

I'm an idiot... i was thinking the rear driveshaft was driven directly from the transmission. I was hoping I could drop the transfer case and still be able to drive on just the rear.

No need to drop the T-case for a chain swap. A fresh T-case chain is a 2-3 hour job. Add another hour or two for being a first-timer, and add one hour to drop the T-case, and one hour to re-install.

Assuming no damage to the shift fork itself, a chain, new guides, and RTV is all you need.
