2001 4WD ABS, are the front and rear separate systems?

Hey everyone! I am in the middle of an extremely hectic move, and the big day of hauling is tomorrow! Well, my 4Runner decides to bust a line in the rear and spew fluid all over the place the day before. This is EXTREMELY unfortunate as we still have too much to do, and not enough time as it is. I do have a uHaul truck for the bulk of it, but I can't leave my truck here, and I was planning on it being loaded full of stuff as well.

I read in a thread about bleeding brakes here that the front and rear systems are essentially separate in the 2001-2002 models. Would I reliably have my front brakes still for a single trip, or will all the fluid front and rear eventually leak out entirely through the rear line? I'm not trying to do anything entirely reckless, but if I have front brakes reliably, it is a short trip to my new location, all quiet back roads, and I can avoid major hills. Oh, and my ebrake does work relatively well.

I dunno, I'm really desperate. Is this a stupid thing to consider?

Thanks

Its tough spot to be in, moving can be hectic. Replace the line and bleed the brakes. Safety before hurry. I hate Murphy's law. Just my opinion.

Edit: you might also ruin your expensive brake module. The brake reservoir will empty out and the brakes will stop working.

Yeah, the problem is, if the rear line being open is going to empty the entire reservoir, then that's just going to happen. I can not deal with it right now, so if I can't drive it, then AAA is going to tow it to my new place with the brake line leaking (or emptied by that time tomorrow), and even then I probably won't get to it for a few more days. This truck was on it's last leg anyway, but I just needed one more day, lol.
