I have purchased the vehicle listed above recently without the rear driveshaft. I have been driving the truck on front driveshaft in four wheel drive high. What all needs to be replaced when I install the new rear driveshaft? It drives pretty good but has started leaking transmission fluid from under transmission not transfer case.

Do you
have the same problem?

Good morning.

Are the flanges for mounting the new drive shaft in good condition?

Check the yoke at the differential and the output of the transfer case. If they are good then all you need is the driveshaft and the u bolts to mount it up.
