Thanks to everyone for your input.
Jeepnick, I do have a local driveline shop that will rebuild for about $300. Both Grizz and Fishtale have worked the them with good results.
I pulled the driveshaft off, at the transfer case side, and greased all three fittings. The ball was just about dry but no damage from what I could see. Cardan seemed solid. Test drove and quiet so far. Hopefully I caught it in time.
AS OTHERS HAVE STATED, LUBE YOUR DRIVESHAFT ABOUT EVERY 6 MONTHS TO A YEAR , OR IT WILL COST YOU!!!
Big thanks to PhilD for his great pricing on a new driveshaft, if needed one, and more information on checking mine for damage to save it. He saved me a purchase I didn't want to make right now. GREAT VENDOR!!! I will do more business with him soon.
