drive shaft should bolt up without any modification. are you looking for a drum or disc axle? i can't remember which set up (or both) you need to make a spacer for the e brake cable for it to work properly. usually an odd size 1/4" socket you never use is the right length.

me, i just cut the cable off and removed the pedal from my cab.
