No, with the transfer case gone there is nothing to power the rear wheels.

The transmission will still be in for the rear wheels I'm just wanting to take the front axles out and the awd trans case to rebuild it I have already taken the shaft out from trans case to transmission

The transmission powers the transfer-case and the rear drive- line through the transfer-case clutch assemblies, so if the transfer-case is gone then the rear drive-line cannot be powered. the transfer-case is bolted to the transmission tail-shaft housing so there is nothing for the rear drive shaft to bolt too. AS the transfer-case and the transmission are married there is no shaft between the two. Maybe your referring to the front differential housing? If that is the case and your actual transfer-case is still in the vehicle, there is a lot of warnings that running it without a front drive line can and will damage the viscous clutch inside the transfer-case assembly, and just the cost of that part alone is over 400 bucks, then you have the labor of replacing it. I know cause the clutch locked up on my old Mountaineer and you could not even drive it without it bucking at every slight turn.
