Get a driveshaft from an extended cab truck and install it into your truck. you just have to build a carrier bearing crossmember and move the evap tank. it'll probably be your easiest and cheapest route

How's your pinion angle? adjusting the angle to the correct spec helps alot of guys get rid of the vibration.

I had called some shops and asked them if they could make a 1 piece driveshaft smaller in diameter like the extended cabs and they said it wouldnt workfor some reason. I forgot what they said. Id much rather have a smaller one piece than a 2 piece

Umm I not to sure. Its decent i think. What would I measure? The pinion leaving the carrier bearing and the rear end pinion?

I almost did the exact same thing last weekend trying to haul a bunch of dirt. Thank god I installed taller then normal bumpstops. However, everytime I hit a large bump my driveshaft would rub. After it was all said and done I had a nice clean scrap right on the weld of the rear yoke. So to fix it, last night I notched the crossmember so I won't happen again. I have no idea why CC driveshafts are so damn large.
