My 01 has an aluminum one, but I know around the next following years there was a TSB or something for the steel drive shafts and vibrations. Most of them were swapped out with aluminum ones from the dealer.

My 03 4.0 auto has one, but from what I know, it was put in under a TSB. I got it in 08 after it sat in the dealer's lot for a while, and the stickers were still on it.
