Slip yoke play

I found some play (up and down) in my drive shaft (slip yoke) and wondering if this could be to much. Seem quite too much to me. I do not know what the spec is for this but to my knowledge I should not have this kind of play.
2009 ranger 13000 KM
No load on my transmission I put the truck in neutral then hand brake then in park.

I made a short video at this link.

Did you have the axle jacked up at the time or frame?

a slight amount of play is normal(as long as the seal isn't leaking)as the yoke has to be able to slide freely in the tailshaft.


a moments silence for the shelbyx,i hope her new owner enjoys as much.

I was just thinking about the spot where the seal seems to normally sit. If the truck were resting in its normal position, most of the play, what little there is, would disappear.
