Since power goes to both the front and rear wheels I suspect the truck will not move with a drive shaft removed. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeep_four-wheel-drive_systems

In a 4x4 their are 2 driveshafts, Front and Rear. I know that I could drive it. My question is will it mess anything up in the front end??

There is a center differential that will rout all the power to the wheels with less traction meaning all the power could go to the disconnected axle. This is all wheel drive which is different than 4 wheel drive. If you locked the center differential it could work but I would not recommend it.
