2.5" ID sch 40 HREW. Gives a wall of ~.20. for an over all dia of 2.9". Welded to the chunk and knuckles. 4 3/4 rosette welds down each side of the long tube and 2 on the short tube. New pass upper bracket, new 1/4" lower brackets, JJ's for the uppers.
The rest is classified until it's done

I added 400 thousandths to the OD of the tube. (pst, that makes it just shy of 1/2" wall)

Did you sleeve it, that would make sense for the welds down the length.

My bad, I read too quickly. Now I see it's around .4" wall. Very nice.

SO how do you plan on fixing the main problem of the d30? The ring and pinion?

I haven't found the R&P to be a weakness for me.

I've never considered the R&P to be the problem either.....housing rigidity, knuckles and ball joints? Yes.
