Gearing issues....

Hi, I just replaced my rear axle with a used one that I got off craigslist. Like an idiot I took the gentleman's word that the axle ratio was a 4.10 However after I installed it and tested 4 wheel I found that rather abruptly it was not!

After some research I found out it's a 3.07 ratio. If I do not use 4 wheel drive while having this axle in the jeep and only use 2 wheel will I risk damaging any components in the vehicle?

It seemed very smooth in two wheel and on the high way I of coursed noticed the speedometer was off but meh... Right now I just need to get to work without killing my Jeep.

what is your front axle ratio? if it's 3.07, then there's no problem.
Can anyone tell me how the flux capacitor is used to facilitate time travel?
