What you experienced was an "open" carrier in the transfer case. It was literally directing all force to the front driveshafts which were absent. I wouldn't say it was a problem, just a PITA.

Good luck with the rest of your swap, getting the transmission back in can be a real pain. I've done it alone, but would NEVER do it again....and that's on a race car that I built to make it easy to change. Get help.
