    The actual drive shaft, no. Should only turn if the truck is moving.

    It may rotate some due slop in gears & u joints, but never more than a wiggle.

    If you are spinning it by hand, be careful, it is real easy to run over your self before you realize the truck is moving. lol

    Just curious, but what difference would it make, unless he was spinning a pto driveshaft?
