Default drive shaft questions

(Thinking I wish I knew where my book is...) does this driveshaft have a simple ujoint at each end, or a fancy double jointed thing at one end? (otherwise known as a double cardan joint) and if so, is this where the slop is coming from? is this a std cab shortbed, or 4 door longbox, or what kind of body style? Does it have a carrier bearing in the driveshaft?
