Quick answer needed about rear driveshaft


I just noticed my u-joint is broken. Has anyone dropped the rear shaft and just driven with the front?

Only in an emergency will and have i ever done it. And that was after shearing a bolt of in my U-joint on the trail with no bolt extractor. Definately keep it under 50mph and fix it ASAP.
'Cuz im Mr. OOGIE BOOGIE and you ain't going NO WHERE.
