Any idea at all where the smoke is coming from? Check the fluid levels in your trans, transfer if it's a 4X4, and rear axle. I'd also be tempted to remove the drive shaft (don't forget to mark the shaft and yokes for proper reassembly) and make sure the u-joints move freely. If you've driven it a few miles before you do this, a u-joint cap that is hotter than the rest will indicate a lack of lubrication to that part of the joint. While you have it out, check both the yokes for any excessive movement.
