There is no convenient way...you have to change the frontend out then eleminate the transfer case etc. and put in a longer driveshaft. It would be much simpler to just sell the 4 wheel drive and buy a 2 wheel drive.

Remove the four wheel drive transmission, transfer case and driveshafts.

Replace with a two wheel drive transmission and a longer rear driveshaft.

Nothing detrimental will happen to the truck with all of the four wheel drive components left in the front end of the truck, whether they are used or not.
