I have a 2wd 2003 chevy s-10 extended cab short box pickup. The rear half of the driveshaft is starting to vibrate. I was told I had to replace the whole driveshaft, but I am finding it very difficult to...

You shouldn't have to replace the whole shaft. Go to auto Zone or Advance Auto Parts and tell them you need the Rear u-joint for the Drive Shaft of that vehicle and they should have it. The replacement process is a little tedious but can be done. Get the Haynes repair Manual on your vehicle, while your there at the Auto parts store, and look up the Drive Shaft. It will tell you how to remove, inspect and if needed replace the U-Joints on your drive shaft. If in fact for some reason, and I have never seen or heard of this, the U-Joints can't be replaced the Manual will tell you. Because they are usually pressed in on the shaft itself some say you have to replace the whole thing but they can normally be removed with a little muscle.

2001 Jeep Wrangler 5spd.... 2wd is out!

Either you have broken something inside the transfer case but equally likely is that you blew up the spider gears in the rear differential. I'd remove the cover and take a look. If they're broken, it won't be difficult to see.(smaller gears inside the center section) And, they are replacable
Hope that's all it is!
Good Luck!!!
