mega-cab driveshaft problems

I just had my tranny replaced and the rear driveshaft rebuilt and extended 1" about 150 miles whent by and the bearing sliped out the backside of the housing the shop replaced the driveshaft with another one they just had rebuilt 611 miles and the samething happend it is slipping out of the transfer case any ideas on the problem I do have a 6" lift and it has been on the truck for over 20,000 miles with no problems and it is shimed the driveshaft is almost stright. the shop, when told of the second failure replied they would check on a stright shaft for me ( that is a long 1 piece shaft) but it has been 12 days with no word. they are well known and I do not whant to say anything bad about them at this time but i need my truck back on the road
thank for any input

No I have not checked that but everything was fine before the driveshaft was reworked
there are two slip joints and it has had two different driveshafts in it

i don't see traction bars in your sig, so you could be getting axle wrap and it's causing it to pull out .
