wtf...05 u-joint

Can someone tell me whats up with the new drive shafts

A customer had a 2005 f150 and I call around for a simple joint and part stores are saying cut the shaft ends and its like $120 for a joint

Pretty soon were going to be getting more 05's with u-joint problems so Id like to know more information about them, what joints, whats the years that have this stupid design, ect
