I've heard that you can convert to the newer style track bar by drilling out the holes and getting the proper larger bolts. The reason for this it that you may be able to find an adjustable trackbar for the newer truck used, or ebay, or... you see where I'm going with this...
Also... the newer stock (non-adjustable) track bar on the newer trucks is made out of steel pipe, and the older one seems to be a cast type metal... I wouldn't recomend welding it unless you are good with cast... I would also not just cut your sleave pipe square... After I cut it to lenth and there was sure to plenty of overlap, I'd cut some v-notches in it, as deep as the pipe is in diameter, (to kind of give it a 'kings crown', spiky look) for more than double the availible weld surface.
