unfortunately i dont have the equipment either, luckily i have a good friend that happens to be a cnc programmer.

i made my front shaft tonight.

i welded a 3" piece of the 2" .250 wall into an end yoke.


i was able to get some weld on the inside also.


i then drilled some holes in my 2.5" for some plug welds.


slide it in and weld'er up.



no pic of the finished product, but let me tell you that .250 wall will go before the weld does.

I have some machinist friends back in Okla, but it's a 6 hour drive away. I may have to go see them over the holidays and show them this thread. My YJ is a custom creature using the Wagoneer TF727, NP208 and for now has the stock axles. It will be getting either a regeared AMC20 or possibly a GM14. Not sure on the 14 yet, a friend back in Okla has one setting under a van he said I could have.

So I may have missed it, but which end is going to the transfer case? 2.5" or 2"? And what about the rear?

DB can put them either way because he is doing 1410's for every u-joint.

I am pretty sure you want the 2.5" end at the transfer case and the 2" end at the diff. Keeps grease in and water/grime/oil out the way I see it.

It doesn't really matter if it's 1410 on both ends, depends on the clearance with the exhaust, etc. I guess. Personally, i'd run the small tube on the axle side to help keep it out of the rocks, but it's really no different either way.

One additional thing you might consider doing is to reinforce the open end of the larger outside tube with a 1" slice of 3" square like how the end of a hitch receiver is made. This protects againt splitting the tube down the weld. It's done on receiver hitchs for the very same reason, to prevent spliting the receiver tube. Like I did on the end of this receiver...

like brutus said im gonna run the 2.5 on the tcase end to prevent (as much as i can) crap from getting in the shaft.

i like the idea of the 3" to strengthen it. might look into it. i dont think that it would cause too much problems draging across the rocks w/ the extra .25".

Addition from Jason:

I wanted to add that I am going to add some plastic wearstrip to the driveshaft the next time I take it off. I am looking at McMaster Carr PN: 7701T211 and then using some aluminum rivets or something to help hold them solid.

Thanks,
Jason
