front driveshaft pretzeled

Is it possible to repair the stock front driveshaft?

I was changing the oil and checking the underside of the J10 and noticed that the front driveshaft was twisted (looked at least 180deg twist). A Is it possible to cut out the twisted section and weld a sleeve in its place? Has anyone done this? and is it recommended? The truck will stay stock for the time being. Will try and get some pics.

Just cut off the entire tube and replace it. The front shaft isn't very long.
