Havent checked the slip yokes, how do you do that? No the transmission doesnt slip at all. It actually shifts pretty good. What I hate about it is that at about 42 mph, if I try to accelerate rapidly, rather than have the transmission down shift immediately, it first feels like it hesitates, then downshifts very hard. When it then shifts to OD or 4th gear, it is a very hard shift, so much so passengers say it sounds like the transmission is about to fall out.
The driveshaft slack is such that if you reach up and grab the drive shaft, it turns significantly. I can't say how much now, but I can go under the truck and report back. Its just that when I took it to shop, the shop wanted to rebuild transmission, transfer case, and rear differential which seemed excessive to me.
THe truck now has 148K miles on it.
