So I have searched to no avail for the answer to this question. I am considering welding my rear dif. I know its a bad idea, but lets ignore that as I am not going to spend $300 on a locker for a truck I paid $800 for (but do plan on spending $1000 on tires). So I have a buddy who has a big welder and is good at welding. He has welded difs in the past, and i asked what he needed for me to do for prep. He told me I had to pull tires, hubs, drums, axle shafts etc. Is there a less involved way on a 60? I know on some rigs it can be done in 10 minutes with only removing a cover and cleaning out some grease. Can that be done on an FJ60 with everything still on the truck or do I need to pull it all?
