Check the U-joints first, you should have very little up and down movement when the driveshaft is in the truck.
As far as the install goes, Dropping your driveshaft isn't as easy as you think it is. The carrier bearing is pressed on, so if you have the 2-piece driveshaft, unbolt it from the second piece and take the big part out. Then unbolt the bearing and take the rest of the driveshaft out.
The trans is a slip-yolk style, so you won't have to worry about any fluid and its up to you on changing your rear end fluid. If its never been done, you might want to think about it.
