I know I could search for an answer to this question on other forums, but I think this question should be here for good info purposes, sooooo... Have any of you ran a pig with a welded rear? When I ran my samurai, I welded the rear and locked the front. Aside from the tires chirping on sharp turns, I had absolutely no problems on the road with it. A pig however is a lot heavier, and I don't want to lose my on-roadability. The reason I ask is I was thinking of getting a detroit soft locker, but it will be many moons before I can save the cash (I'm pretty much tapped out, and the wife would just come unglued if I spent more). Since most lockers replace whole spider carrier, I thought I could weld up a couple of teeth to work until I could afford my lockers... What think you knights?
