You're looking at the same cost either way, Dodge had it right with carrier in this case. The only reason to get rid of it is if you are extending your drive train.

personally, IF you do allot of towing or have a heavy foot then a two piece is a must. My rear end rolls almost 2 1/2 inch when i mash on the throttle or pulling a load. The slip joint helps allot... if i had a one piece... Id probably break something with all the slack in my rear end. I need traction bars...but need money first lol

no one has stated the obvious here PINION ANGLE sure go with a one piece if you like replacing u joints and dropping your drive shaft on main street

if your going with a one piece you will most likely need to upgrade to cv joints on the ends to handle the angle without any problems if the truck is lifted cv's are a must
