Yes.
You will have AWD with open rear differential or regular turf mode in either turf mode or 2WD positions.
Only thing lacking will be no locked rear differential.
Another thing is if you have broken parts loose in there they can cause major damage.
Since you have run it this far with no problems you might be okay, but no guarantees.

Excellent advice from Rockit.

Just to be sure... take a look at the rear axle cups and make sure both are fully seated in the trans. Meaning, ones not hanging out of the trans farther than the other.

You might keep an eye on it in the future.
Default position for the rear differential is locked and spring pressure is the only thing that keeps it locked so if the locking dogs are rounded off it might possibly unlock under certain load conditions.
The solenoid only retracts the engagement dog to unlock it.

In turf mode both wheels must be on the ground. Otherwise the diff will just put the power to the wheel with the least resistance. If in turf mode when shutting it off or turning it on do you hear the diff lock solenoid?

Did you just replace the axcel or do more?
