On some trucks, there are two driveshafts. One coming from the Transmission (or Transfer Case) and one going to the differential. On those, there's a U-joint in the middle. My 94 is a one piece. Hell, I think most of them were. But check.

Well, do you have a 2 or 3 joint shaft? 2 u joints is for a single piece shaft. 3 is for a two.
