Poor Man’s Rear JIG

I'm trying to weld my Axle Tubes, and yes I'm trying to pinch pennies where I can to help save for that "GAS" that the Dart will eventually be sucking down. Is there a way to get the tubes aligned for welding without spending a small fortune on a Jig?

One idea I had was to a length of pipe, or perhaps tacking on angle iron onto the individual tube sections, to hold them in alignment, and then welding up the seam. I could then cut the tacks, and finish the weld. Also, would leaving the Angle iron on the top of the top add to the stability (in case my welds suck :)....)

Thanks to everyone for sharing your awesome Mopar knowledge here on FOAB :read2:.
