I did this with mine, but I used a stock drag link from an XJ. I cut it basically in half eliminating excess length from the middle, beveled the two ends and butt welded it back together. Then I sleeved some square tubing over the entire thing. I had drilled various holes in the tube so I could rosette weld it to the drag link as well as at the ends....

Not the best pic, but you can see it here....
