There are no problems, tires will hate you in the rear along with turning on pavement! Its actually quite funny in parking garage with the chirping. In all honesty I would not recommend welding the rear.

I have driven it the work a few times just because, around town, to the trails, and the wife likes to look cool and get groceries. Its honestly not that bad unless you are trying to turn at full lock.

It has been welded since 08, and I for sure used and abused its offroad. I have honestly been waiting for the front or rear to go
