How many miles are on the truck?

And where is was the truck located?

If over 200K, then it is a possibility, if the truck was used in the oilfields, Northern states, where 4 wheel drive is mandatory. There could be lots of miles on the t-case.

Yes, it is possible to hear some noise when you turn the front yoke by hand. These chains do wear and stretch. They are also pretty easy to replace. What is the reason the front drive shaft was pulled? Have you checked the oil level or possibly changed the oil recently?

The truck has been in mo for a few years but it originally came from Minnesota. When I bought it the driveshaft was in the bed the po said the driveshaft went bad twice in 2 or 3 years.When I pulled the old one out of the bed the mechanic said po had used a smaller bolt with a nut on opposite end to hole it to the transfer case.As 1 of the bolts has been broke off so he attached it through some of the open hes using the nut;& bolt.Said that was the stupidest thing he ever saw.

I just wonder what the PO did for maintenance to cause that many driveshaft failures in such a short time. Are the holes in the flange wallowed out? Kind of sounds like it may be time to go through the t-case and get it back to where it should be.

I'd check for 2 easy things.
Make dang sure the prop shaft is the right length.. and This may be stupid, but verify the front axle ratio is the same as the rear! (both internal gear, and external wheel/tire size)
your rig lifted?
