brown wire mod on A4WD

Does anyone have any info about a wire modification on an a4wd system on a 99 expedition. Someone asked if it was done to my expedition in another thread, and I know nothing about it and did not get a response from them. So i thought id see if anyone might know something about it.

If your truck doesn't have a 2WD option on the dial, cutting the brown wire (or putting a toggle switch in) will disable the front drive clutch when it's in AWD so you can stay in 2wd, even with slippage.

Mine has 2wd, so that is all I know.

This rather lengthy thread should be able to supply you with any answers for the brown wire mod.
