Yeah, but not sure how you'll like it in a DD. You get used to it after a while. Everyone will freak out when you make a turn. It's kind if funny.

It won't last long like that. Why would you take it back apart? You can fully weld it up and still take the c clips out.

Weld up all the spiders and weld the side gears to the carrier. It will never break. I did mine with my 110!

Its not much fun on a DD if you care about tire wear, been there with my old '96. But awful hard to beat being welded offroad.

Yeah, see, you can't really "kinda" weld it. It's a full commitment. You either fully weld it up or don't. "Kinda" welding it will be an automatic explosion...

Bald tires means less grip which in turn means less wear! Or something like that.
