99 f150 has a front and rear driveshaft. What are you referring to? The axle shaft? Front or rear?

Shaft, if it is a solid shaft, no, it cannot be driven without it. If it is a shaft with inner and outer cv, yes it can but you need to put a dummy outer cv joint in to prevent damage to the hub

If you mean by solid shaft a straight axle then no my truck is independent suspension so there is two cv shafts on either side of the 4x4 box

Ok, then you need to get a dummy outer so you can support the hub
