front shaft can last 10miles.....front shaft can last 30,000mies. it's a huge variable and it's the ticking timebomb. For you for your given setup, who knows...

it make take a dump the first time you shift into 4wd and start using that front axle.

Yeah who knows about the driveshaft. But keeping the hubs unlocked will definitely help it last longer since you will only be wearing it when you need it.
