    Can anyone tell me if the 15,000 mile recommendation of re-tourqueing the propeller shaft is an easy task. I want to save some money, take care of my truck and feel good that it is taken care of. So, how do I do it myself and where exactly is the propeller shaft located?

    The propeller shaft is another name for the driveshaft. If you have 4 wheel drive you will have a front and rear driveshaft. 2 wheel drive only has a rear.

    It is very easy IF: you have the correct torque specs (ie 2ft lbs or whatever) and you have a decent torque wrench. Other than that, set the torque wrench and find the bolts to torque, easypeezy.

    Oh, and the driveline (propeller shaft) is the tube going to and perpendicular to the axle.
