No it wont. I'm jus assuming you have a 98 ranger by your name. We have a (i dont know what it would be called but its not a live axle). In essence i believe that the front axle is not spinning and the driveshaft is not spinning as well. When you're in 2wd all your power does go to the back axle. When you engage 4wd it then engages your transfercase to lock in the driveshaft.
I think the only thing that'd speed you up is being 2wd compared to 4wd.
