Rear driveshaft removal

So I broke my rear driveshaft going to work and I am trying to remove it. I used the search and all the suggestions said to unstrap it at the axle end and then it just slides out. But all of the threads said your transfer case will lose fluid then so how do you remove the rear shaft and still be able to drive it on the front shaft?

It may seem like a dumb question but I am stumped.

the newer TJ transfer cases are capable of having the driveshaft pulled out without a loss of fluid.

The older TJ transfer cases are the same.

Keep in mind that free advice can frequently be worth less than you pay for it.
