Can I drive my truck with just the front axle?

I have an 84 Chevy K20 4x4, and the rear axle ground itself up. I have pulled the truck into a spot in my yard using the front axle, and a couple of years ago when I was working on the rear driveshaft I had to drive it a few blocks and back to a shop to get things figured out. So what I‘m wondering is, would I destroy the truck any further if I just plugged the hole on the transfer case where the rear driveshaft goes and used it to drive to work and back at low speeds for a prolonged period of time? I am having a hard time coming across a rear axle since my truck was all I had to haul things and no one that has one near were I live is willing to deliver. I‘m in a small town so there is no u-pull-it place and well, I‘m just stuck in a situation where the persons car we were lent is becoming a burden.


i would not recommend driving with the front wheels because it will mess up your transmission, when you turn it will bind up. causeing stress on the tranny and transfer case.
