What advice can you give my on cutting down a drive shaft ? I have a explorer shaft for my TJ and I would like to cut it myself. I am confident in my welding skills, I am not confident in how to align it perfectly center.
How did you accomplish the task of keeping it straight?
Sorry to clog you build thread.
I used a piece of 1.5 x .120 DOM tubing which fits pretty well inside the stock Jeep driveshaft so that got me pretty well aligned to start. I cut it on a cold saw at 0 degrees for both cuts so when it was butted up to each other it came out very straight. I used a straight edge to check it and it came out great. Keep in mind it's a front driveshaft so it's not a big deal. The rear I will take my time with and then have it balanced.

Updates bro? I've found another stock pitman arm to drill out for my heim joint. I'm also picking my up some wheels next week. Everyone tells me there a real PITA to mount because of the side wall being so stiff.
