Looks decent. But, The custom Nobs cut out compares to that 1/3 chevy, 1/3 Jeep, 1/4 rockwell, 1/8 ford on the scary steering site...

I don't thing you need anything in there, But are you going to have a shackle frame mount? or does that tube telescope?
If it telescopes then i would plate it with some 1/4 and speed hole it

it telescopes with 1 1/4" solid round. should I set screw in one side so it's replaceable or just plug weld?
and thanks.

If you're not going to use a shackle (any reason??) I would plug weld. Set screws suck... they break and strip out too much for something in that situation. Depending on how much you plan to set the round stock in the front end tube, I would use at least two plug welds

the plugs would suck to drill out if the round stock wears out.It'll last along time with a zerk for grease,but eventually it will have to be replaced. locking collar ideas?

Wouldn't it be easier to run a shackle instead? You could sleeve the two ends, either with the round stock, or another piece of tube, but personally, I would rather see that run the shackle. I forget where now, but I did see a guy run the slip joint from an old jeep, or scout, driveline on his anti-wrap bar... whatever teh F it was from, it was a small slip joint (pto, maybe?)
