I would but Im not in college station, I live in Houston. Besides why don't you do it. Save the bucks. Its not hard. If a gurl can,u should be able to. Its not much to it. You might get you hands durty. Also if you have three u-joints that are bad,that means your truck has a hanger bearing. So if the three are bad you better change it also. Still its not a bad job. Just takes a few wrenches,a vice or a hammer, and a few minutes.

Brazos valley drivelines (BVD) on FM2818 in Bryan can help you out. Joints will run about 10-15 bucks each and labor will be around 1 hour. I agree with TryMe though, you can do this with simple hand tools.
two things I recommend: mark the positon of the shafts in relation to each other before removal with chalk or crayon, and do not hammer on the new joints to install them, use a c-clamp and a couple of sockets instead.
