Front driveshaft disconnect

Wondering if anyone here (4WD WK) has driven there Jeep without the front driveshaft? reason i ask is because i am trying to locate a problem and want to remove the shaft for a few days and drive it around town.

No smart @ss comments please! i am annoyed by this issue as it is.

Thanks

Not sure on the problem, i have replaced my entire front end minus the axle and still have terrible steering, i hear a very bad and scary clunk which i can't seem to find anywhere, not sure i can blame my lift then again i might have to tear down my front end again and hope i find the cause of my steering.
My new rack and pinion shows no leaks at all which i still feel that it might be my problem.
I am just so feed up with this POS and really considering making my Jeep rear wheel drive at all cost.

I would imagine it's something electrical that might not let me drop the front driveshaft?
Not 100% sure if that is where my clunk is coming from.

Now that i think about it, my front yoke and transfer case would still be spinning acting as if my driveshaft was in place..

Are you having trouble with ESP/ABS or just the noise? Can you describe it alittle better? Also i believe you can't disconnect the front driveshaft...

If its a fulltime 4x4 then you cant disconnect the front ds.... it will make the viscous coupling inside freak out!

It will try and transfer power to the wheels with no slip... if no connection to front wheels.... will try and transfer all the power to the front but no driveshaft to transfer anything
