Tuning your truck to "roll coal" is like putting a spoiler on the back of a front wheel drive car... And then lighting it on fire.

It is up to you but I had my rear ujoint go out at 76,000 miles so I found a local driveline specialist shop 10 min away and took it to them. They replaced both ujoints with spicer and spun balanced my drive shaft for $115 if I remember correctly. All I had to do was pull my driveshaft out and take it to them and they did find my driveshaft out of balance on the rear half which more then likely lead to the premature failure.
