rear drive shaft problems

my jeep now vibrates real bad when i am going at a slow speeds and i have noticed that my rear drive shaft has a lot of play with it. so today i put new u joints in hoping it would fix it but theres still a bunch of play in the front of the drive shaft. so what do you guys think is the problem and how would you suggest me fixing it???

If you grab the DS at the slip yoke...is that where the play is? I was just under my jeep today and noticed I have a little bit of play there too. No vibes yet...but am waiting for the day.
