You can drive it like that for a week. Just don't go stomping it inthe mud or anything crazy.

i drove my truck...wheeled it...beat on it...for several months with both of my CVs blowing grease...not leaking...full on puking...

the passenger side finally gave up on a wheeling trip...the drivers side is a trail spare now because it still works

When I bought this 4runner, all 4 boots were shredded and I'm not sure how long they were like that before I got it.
