Time to build a new rear shaft and ditch the 1350 stuff.

Just got my 1410 14B yoke, 1410 tube yoke for driveshaft, just got a piece of 2" .120 tube from d and r, and went to Weller yesterday and snagged a 1410 driveshaft from a super duty for $28 . Just need to get the male slip machined down to fit the tube and ready to go.

The yokes are make to fit .120. I think you should sleeve the inside with some 1.75dia .120 dom.

Or just bore thicker wall to depth. I agree that .120 (or in Beefy's case 1/8) is too thin.

On the other hand John, I thought you wanted a lightweight buggy. I'm thinking something like .060 wall.

One option is to hit up a trailer shop for scrap. I got some 3"x ~0.200" thick axle tubing for my 1410 stuff. It was a drop so it was cheeeeeep. I didn't know they made 1410 stuff for 2x0.120.

No issues after 5+ years.

I haven't been breaking 1350 stuff. But when I grabbed my driveshaft from the junkyard Tuesday, they did have a ford super duty dually with the 1480 jointed shaft still in it.
