Well as I expected. Dealer said it's normal and wouldn't be covered under warranty regardless. Due to the lift I put on the vehicle (BDS 4")

Funny thing is this problem was present prior to installing the lift and they have that on record.

I am getting an alignment done today and sending in the driveshaft to get balanced.

I would normally say its something to do with the truck lifted but if it was doing it prior to being lifted than probably not the case.

I found on my previous Power Wagon I was getting some wierd driveline vibes...no shop could figure out where it was coming from, everything looked good as far as every place was concerned. Can't remember what caused to me to try it...but I took the shaft itself apart, i.e. separated the slip portion. From the factory it came with hardly any grease on the splines...I greased the hell out of it, put it back together and it completely fixed my problem.

Its a little surprising that there isn't some sort maintenance schedule for this...on every aftermarket drive shaft I've had with the slip built into it they come with grease fittings so you can keep the splines greased up.

I haven't taken mine out yet, but a local mechanic who specializes in these trucks told me that the bolts are loctited and I may have to heat them to get them to release. I'm a bit nervous about trying because I don't like to use heat that close to a seal.

They're fine...dont need heat, just slow steady pressure

I’ve never had to heat them either. Just be sure your torx bit is fully seated and square.
