When we arent planning a trail/mud run i can just put the regular carrier back in for more road driving. Thats if this would even work. So as far as the shaft randomly breaking cuz of the weld it would be at slower speeds so if happens hopefully wouldnt cause a whole lot of damage.
Basically, forgetting the entire discussion about is it wise to lock a D35, if you do what you are talking about, you will have two different R&P setups.... neither of them would be the correct setup and backlash, so I susect the end result will be you will have a D35 with a very short life span and the only question will be when & where will it explode.

Just buy a mini spool and blow up the R&P already.
