I blew up my rear driveshaft, and I'm retiring the truck in about a months time anyways. Is there any harm being done by leaving it in 4x4 and running off the front? I've been doing it for a few days now and all seems fine. its a 93 f150

if it's got a fixed yoke output (aka there isn't a hole all your fluid can leak out of) and you are retiring it soon anyway, I would say your fine running at off the front

negative on that. Slip yoke. I'll just keep filling it at work every few days, the truck gets driven mabye 3km a day. Other than that, I guess i'm good? Dosnt turn worth a shit, but that i can live with.
