    I'm looking for a source for some sort of small U-joints that can be mounted on a .375" or .50" rod. Not sure exactly what these would be called, or the application. The closest thing I can think of would be the size of a socket drive U-joint, but I'd like something that can be x-pinned to the rod. I searched Grainger.com and came up with some hits at around $50 each which are probably overkill based on price and capacity.

    I'm mounting a late-model GM spare tire carrier winch under my truck bed and need to route a multi-section crank rod with U-joints near to the back bumper.

    Go to MSC Industrial Supply at www.mscdirect.com and search universal joints. They have several, not as pricey as what you found.

    Bingo - the Light Duty ones at McMaster should be fine!

    Thanks George!
