2WD convert possible?

Wondering. I have a fine running old 01,3.0,auto with 250K miles. I see where down the road many X5'ers have problems with the front drive portion of the drivetrain system. So, is it possible to convert these beast to a 2 WD system by simply removing all the front drive parts? Can I swap in a 330i motor, tranny,driveshaft etc. and go? Old X seems to have mechanical system and not the electronic engage system of the newer X's. Just wondering.I live in FL, its FLAT and seems to be where old stuff goes to pass on.
