Driveshafts are year specific. I believe '01-'05 are a different length than '06-newer. They will not interchange. So as long as his is in the right year range, it would work.

We would like a better description of how it acts.

Is it a smooth case of rpm increasing faster than speed, if you ease off the throttle, the speed catches up the rpm? All smooth?

Or, is it a sudden, jerking but temporary loss of pull?

Very different symptoms with different "Internet diagnosis".

A sudden "let go" and grab again? If so, that sounds (to me) more like what some call "ghost shifting". Not good. Search that term here and read the descriptions from others that have had that issue. Let us know if that is what you are feeling.

Also, pay special attention to the OD light on the dash. Does it come on solid and always stay on when shifting into 5th gear? When you feel the "slip", does the OD light go off?

Less torque for the engine, not the final drive. High gear take off is rough on the engine, not the drivetrain.

Wish I had a better explanation but that's about the best I can do.
Uhhhhhgh!

I'm lost.

Back when manufacturers were trying to get better fuel economy from big engines. They experimented with engines that would shut off several cylinders at highway speeds. The rational was it only took around 13 hp to maintain speed on level ground.

I'm no scientist, when to school mainly to eat lunch and look at the girls, but that doesn't sound like a lot of torque is required.

so i just took if for 20 minute ride and have better idea what its doing,it did it like 3or 4 times . it only does it when you shift into fifth gear once you are in fifth it doesnt do it again.feels like sometimes when you shift to fifth it lands in a bad spot. it feels more like a little miss when yougo to fofth gear. its more of jerk feeling doesnt feel like tire slide at all,its def only does when shifting into 5th sometimes.
