    Finished the square shaft today. It was harder then I thought but I think worth it. It cost me nothing but time. I had all the metal left over from the rocksliders.

    Yes thats right, I didn't want to butt weld the front flange to the tube. So I cut the splined part of the old shaft and welded it to a 1.5 od square tube and used a 20 ton press to put it inside the 2x2 .25 wall tube. Then welded the two toghter.
