    ive been in your same situation...i had no front drive shaft due to all the bolts vibrating loose. i was just cruising near my house on a trail next to my street when i decided to get back on the street and go home. here i am waving to neighbors thinking i'm cool and i try to go up this pretty steep but short hill. usually i go up it in 4wheel drive cuz otherwise i would need a good amount of momentum to make it up. for some reason i decide to go slow and consequently slide sideways along the hill into a tree. i cant make it up the hill. the more i try to go up the more i slide (into the tree, at this point i'm cringing at the sound of branches on bedside), so tell my self "well i can just put in 4 wheel drive and get out............crap!" no front drive shaft. i had to back in to tree (even further) scrathing (character marks) my tailgate royally. it sucked :-)
