The mass of moving parts and the relative speeds involved are far different between a Road Ranger /engine combo and the modern 4wd.
One is designed to be matched, the 4wd boxes aren't/don't rely on that. Totally different operational concept.

I had this bunky old 85 Holden Astra that loved shifting without the clutch, it was the easiest thing to do. I cannot however get it to happen on the Patrol haha.

Learnt to drive in a 1942 chev blitz then a 1942 AEC Matator then a Leyland Bison then a Leyland Buffalo. All crash boxes the Leylands had roadrangers. 40 series Landcruiser easy without the clutch, practice makes perfect. Present 2015 Colorado changes nice with the clutch, no need to do clutchless changes but I'm confident I can do it.
