If its part time 4WD, no, there is no center differential and you will end up wearing something out / breaking something somewhere...

Remove the front axles.
But eventually the front diff will go out.

Not in an 88,.. You push that button in and you just locked all 4 wheels. Do that on dry pavement , turn tight and you'll damage/ruin your differential. Do that on slick surface, snow etc, and you are driving the ultimate snow machine. The 88 GL series does not have a limited slip differential. It requires the driver know when to puch the button and when not.
