A carrier bearing can be thought of as a pillow block for your driveshaft. Most commonly used to bridge an excessively long rear driveshaft for stability, it can also be used in applications where you need to route the driveshaft around the transmission or other components. This will allow you to, say, run the driveshaft from the front output shaft to a carrier bearing on the framerail, then down to the front axle yoke to avoid engine or suspension components.
