I checked everything bolts and u joints and they seem good. The only thing is the front driveshaft has a bit of slop. By slop I mean that it spins the slightest amount. Still lost. The haynes manual said to check all the ujoint bolts but that doesnt seem the problem. Hopefully the gears in front axle and xfer case arent messed

My 05' has had some slop in the drive train from the factory. Its annoying, but I don't think it's an issue.
