2000 GMC pickup universal joint problem

I have a 2000 GMC 1500 4X4 pickup, I have owned it since new and in the last three years without fail I have to replace the U joints on the main drive shaft front and back. There is no vibration or anything to indicate missallignment before they go, but I have to replace them every year ????

I do not off raod with the truck and I am at a loss???????

Does anyone have any advice??????

Do you have a lift kit on the truck?If not you must be doing something wrong during installation or the driveshaft angles are incorrect as they would be with a lift kit.

Over-sized tires or not greasing the u-joints during/after installation would do it also
