You cannot remove the driveshaft completely or you will loose tranny fluid out of the tail housing.
You will need to use a plug, or if it were me I would just disconnect the d-shaft from the rear axle (by removing the 2 u-joint straps held in place by 2-bolts ea) then securing the d-shaft to the frame rail or crossmember. This will keep the slip yoke in the tranny so no loss of fluid, nor do you need to store the d-shaft because of complete removal.
When you do disconnect, wrap the u-joint bearing caps with some duct-tape, this will keep the caps (and bearings) in place.
Drove a tow truck. Never 'removed' the d-shaft, just disconnect at the axle and tie it up with more than one type of connection (more than one strap or length of tie wire in case one failed)
