I have a welded rear and it is holding up just fine. Go to IH8MUD.com and go to tech links. There is a article and how to do it instructions. If welded correctly it will hold up fine.

I welded up the rear of our mini truck a couple of years ago. It works great. You should be able to get 10 to 15 thousand miles out of a new set of tires also.

I would only weld the teeth together. Teeth to carrier is not that much stronger if at all..

Weld it all (except the pin in the center than you cannot get the clip on the axles)

I always just filled in several teeth on the spiders and side gears...never welded tham togather or to the carrier. It makes them serviceable and also gives just a little bit of play between the rear axles so it turn a tiny bit better. JMO
