I grew up on a farm, we had a couple of trucks with manual locking hubs that we welded the front diffs (Spider crosses.) solid as hell. I do not know how they faired in the long run as both of them met early demises in totally unrelated manners. Would this be a viable alternative to a selectable locker on my truck? I know I would have to be careful as far as binding on solid ground. (My uncle just ran around with 1 hub locked in unless it got extremely sloppy, then he locked both when he was in one of the "welded" trucks in the fields.) Don't blast me please, just trying to figure out a few low budget things to help me get a little better grip in the soup.
