I'd say no, don't do it. Don't even put weight on the wheels with that removed.

Now that you have the correct answer... I have done it with parts cars. Nothing broke and I did not die. It will cause the rear suspension to shift. You will have trouble getting the plate back on (use a ratchet strap and/or pry bars) and the alignment will need to be checked when it is all back together. Straight and level. Short distance. Slow.

Best answer, still no.
I am not an attorney, mechanic, or member of the clergy. Following any advice given in my posts is done at your own peril.
