    I think that's for open top rigs only. Like a Jeep, Land Cruiser, 1st gen K5 etc. On a half top K5 (2nd gen.) you can wheel cause you have a factory roll cage in the cab. I could be wrong though. /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

    can I ask why you need to do that?

    I would say no because the heat from welding will probably "toast" the u-joint very quickly.

    If your yoke is busted they can be had for cheap cheap at a bone yard. I have a couple stockers I will give you if you come get 'em.
