Weling up the rearend

Hello. Im wondering if anyone here has welded up the spider gears in the rearend of thier vehicle? Im thinking why buy a locker if I can Just weld the gears? If anyone has done this please let me know how it turned out? Did the rearend last long? Also any details on how to do it? Thankls, Tod Oh the Rig is only used Off-road so Im not concerned with Handling characteristics.

Re: Weling up the rearend

If your only going to use this truck off-road than this is a good idea. But it must be done right, otherwise breakage is inevitable.
If your going to weld the back up why not do the front to, just don't try to turn to sharp with both hubs locked. Turn this beast into a true
4x4. Although this isn't the best idea if your going to drive on road to much, you'll be burning off tires left and right. That my 2 cents
hope it helped.

Why not use a spool? From what I hear that's what all the racers are using.

They're suppose to be strong as hell and cheap. No moving parts.

This would be the "proper" way to completely lock the axle.
