2005 Ram 3500 4x4 single rear wheels. Can I drive the truck after removing front drive shaft for U-joint replacement without causing any problems?

I've gone 20,000 km stretches with the front driveshaft out.

You may even notice the reduction of some highway vibrations because of how common it is for the 3rd gen constant spinning front driveshaft to hum.

You should be absolutely fine with driving around less the front driveshaft.

The opposite situation to you, but I drove 400 odd hwy miles immediately after I did a temporary rear driveshaft delete a few years back.

My old beater rattles so much, even at idle, that it would take a better ear than mine to discern any harmonic changes.
