What part of the drivetrain snapped?

You could do more damage depending on what broke the first time.

It should be fine if you go easy on it until you can fix it, but I would avoid the highway. It will probably handle differently at highway speed than what you are used to.

Theoretically, forever.....but you will lose fluild out the back of the Tcase if you have no rear dirveshaft. And the slip yoke won't stay in there long w/out one.

Otherwise you would be fine for a couple weeks driving at safe, moderate speeds.

But as Wolf said, it's best to figure out exactly what broke before assuming any drivability issues.

First off what broke? Stock drive train? Are you planning on using this as a daily driver? If you see any fluid leaking park it. What were you doing when it broke?

P.S. Like the orange Jeep Beachcruiser!
Airwolf was a cool show.
