I wouldn't be worried about the extra U-joints honestly- the ones from the trans to the carrier bearing are running with no angle so I have to imagine that is easier on them than the ones that run at an angle. Rust on the driveshaft isn't going to hurt anything. Aluminum ones are fairly new in terms of being used regularly so there are millions of older trucks with rusty steel driveshafts on the road right now.

oh really? i know they share the wheelbase so i assumed it was the same frame. but then again the extended cab regular bed is longer than a crew cab
