So I'm late to the party, but...
My '93 has a ZF5, BW1356 transfer case, and 10.25" rear, but there is a one-piece driveshaft (2 U-joints, no carrier bearing). Is this a modification - should it have the 3 joints? If so, is there a good reason to install one? thanks.

My guess is if you have regular cab it's one piece, I have a crew cab and a eight foot bed, so it has a two piece driveline.

Standard cab 4x4 will have a one piece driveline.
Standard cab 2x4 will have a two piece.
Crew cab will have multiple piece regardless of drive.
Extendo cab 2x4 is two piece.
I am unsure about extendo 4x4

My 86 is extended cab 4WD and is 2 piece.

All 80-96 ECLB F250 trucks, 2WD or 4WD, that I have ever been underneath, had a 2 piece driveshaft. Think I have been under 8 of these trucks

A lot of the companies that make u-joints have moved to China. And they are now garbage. I use Spicer for u-joints.

And even some spicer part numbers are made in china, if you watch boxes they say where they are made.

Spicer or neapco are still the options for oe quality.
