The last time I changed mine out I didn't unbolt the driveshaft, just pressed out the rear ujoints and the driveshaft slides right out. Make sure you index everything though for when you put it back in.

Anyone with advice? I bought a propane torch and some mild 3/8 inch breaker bars... And all day to curse and whine.

Front or rear driveshaft?

Rear for now. I bought two on the advice of the "parts guy" at O'Sheistys and the fronts look quite a bit smaller. Least now, I have a spare for the rear. Haha.

Hmm. I'mma have a look and see. I'm assuming you just used a standard ball joint/u-joint press?

It's just bolts with nuts holding it on. I'd put an extension on the breaker bar and if the bolt shears no big deal other than having to replace it. Also, consider replacing the rear output shaft seal on the transfer case at the same time if it hasn't already been done. They updated the design, meaning they knew there was a problem. I did it the other way around, the seal was leaking so I did the universal while the driveshaft was removed.

I've got a set that's going on mine in a few days and I'm not Titan swapped. I figured I'd trim a half inch off and start there but this makes it sound like I'll need to cut off a lot more..

Superbumps in the rear, however, aren't long enough. Oh well.

Yeah I just used the balljoint press loaner tool from advance auto. It had a crazy high deposit though but I think that's because it's a universal toolkit with every attachment known to man in it. Thing must have weighed close 40 pounds.

Yep. I just got a loaner. A hundred and forty schmeckles to rent for 48 hours. Sheesh.

Sounds about right. It'll make your life easier now though.
