2010 Chev Suburban - Transfer case

My 2010 Chev Suburban has the 6L80 transmission that Remco will have a lube pump for soon BUT it is also 4x4 with only the single speed transfer case that Remco says the lube pump can't work for and chevy says don't tow it 4 down. I currently tow it on a large custom tow dolly but I am wondering - Any Chevy experts out there. Is it possible to go from the 4x4 single speed transfer case and change it into either the 2 speed transfer case that actually has a neutral on it OR get rid of the transfer case and go to no 4x4?

I'm not a Chevy , expert, but your in the 4X4 vs AWD area here most consider a vehice with a single speed t/case an AWD not a 4X4.
You can check with a Chev dealer to find out if your vehicle was offered with a 2 speed t/case then look around salvage yards for all the related parts, you may be looking for drive shafts, t/case, and a whole pile of wiring and controls if it was only available with electronic shift.
JMHO. Probably cheaper to change vehicles .

Missed this in my first reply.
You say your towing it on a large dolly, currently, or are you trailering the vehice ? All 4 wheels off the ground?
Most AWD , t/cases won't tolerate the rear wheels turning if the fronts are stationary

2010 chev sub

I guess chevy calls it 4x4 because there is a switch to go from 2 wd to 4wd but there is no Neutral in the tsf case which is why it can't be towed flat. The 2 speed transfer case has an N and can be towed flat without a lube pump. I currently tow with rear wheels up on a Landgrebe custom dolly but I would like to go back to towing flat. Have been looking at vehicles etc and considering options. I need a veh that holds 7-8 people though so my options are limited.

Good Luck with your search, and I'll throw this in for what it's worth.
Modification of a vehicle as new as yours may drop the re-sale value, but at least if you are mobile with your current set up, you have time to consider all options.

I had to specifically look for a truck with 2speed transfer case and neutral. A good portion of those have the AWD version which is not towable. I think I would look for Suburban with proper transfer case. Just a footnote, most sales people have no clue how to put transfer case in neutral, my 2011 it took 2salesman, sales mgr. and finally a tech to figure it out. Good luck
