    Can I pull my half shaft out of the bearing/hub and still drive the truck? or is it a part that must be in to drive. Thanks

    Absolutley not, The half shaft passes threw the bearing and when you tighten the axle nut it holds it all together. You can drive it but you WILL trash the bearing and it will be very dangerous.
