I disconnect my rear shaft, take it right out, and have gotten good at it. Better to be safe than sorry. I have also inadvertently left the front hubs in, and the steering locked, learning experiences I won't soon forget.
I have towed mine for thousands of miles, easily a lot more than I have driven it. It tows like a dream, and I'm going to swap in a full floater rear D44 this winter so I'll just unlock the rear hubs as well as the front.
I also prefer to take the shaft right out, that way if something happens so the shaft does move, it won't destroy it. When I get to where I'm going, I also throw it into 4WD and drive it to a level, non-muddy area to throw the shaft back in, something you can't do easily with it hanging out.
