might be time for a SYE. Are you running a track bar in the rear?

i see this a lot when the tab on the axle yoke wears off or breaks off. the u joint vibrates and shifts and then breaks. how many u joints have you gone through? check that both tabs are there on the yoke. this is the best pick i can find. the arrow is pointing right where the tabs are, on the round part of the yoke the u joint sits in. if there's no tab, you'll go through u joints very quickly.

SYE= Slip yoke eliminator. It changes the rear driveshaft output on the tcase from a slip yoke to a fixed yoke. I mentioned traction bar because it sounds like axle wrap but with a spring under that is pretty uncommon. Have you retorqued the U-bolts lately?
