There is no difference on the street. The only thing different is the front drive shaft turns but you won't notice that. I've had mine welded for over a year and I love it. You will need a manual disconnect for the axle though or steering in 4wheel drive will be tough. I bought a manual vacuum switch from DownEast Offroad, it works great and gives me 3 or 4wd. Hope this helps.
