Driveshaft noise

I'm getting a lot of noise in the driveshaft on my truck, especially when accelerating in 3rd and 4th gear. U-joints appear to be tight, pinion bearings tight. The only thing I am questioning is that I have the 2 piece drive shaft, and I was wondering if the carrier rubber was weak would cause it to do this. Its a tinging / rattling in 3rd 4th or 5th under load or toque. Anyone else experience this?

Well a new front u joint, new carrier bearing, and lots of looking later, its still making noise. 4th gear is the worst. The only place I can find anything questionable is the bushing in the tailshaft housing looks a little rough, although the output bearing in the transfer case was ok. There is some a small amount of front to back movement on the output shaft in the transfer case. I am assuming that is just snap ring to snap ring though. Anyone have any ideas? Put it up on stands and run it and no noise, but when i put the brakes on to give it a little load it got noisy. I'm hoping its the output shaft bushing allowing the the driveshaft to work on the splines and a new one will fix it.

I wish you had a solution for this because this exact thing just started happening to me... All u-joints are pretty new too...
