Front Axle Diff Question.........
Ok well I was just messing around thinking about my truck and I have to re-gear my front axle some time coming up. Now I wanted to add a new front diff thats a locker or a nice LS so I can do some better off roading but I don't really have any money. I wanted to know if welding the front spider gears would be a bad idea or not. I don't use the 4x4 on the road at all and I'm more into going through mud. Do you think there is any downfall to this, I do drive my truck as a DD but I don't think it would be that bad.
I don't know if this is a bad or good idea so please comment on it.
