I have welded up my rear diff and was thinking about doing the same in the front. It's on a trail only rig with 108in wheelbase. Is it a good idea to have the front welded or not? Any experience? Turning should be a pita
do a search in general 4x4 tech for "front spool". This topic has been covered twice so far this year and probably more times than that overall. Happy searching:flipoff2:

I had a buddy of mine with a spool up front in a 2 door s-10 blazer tried to do the duzy trail below Yosemite. Guess who got to be the lock/unlock bitch......Me in the passenger seat!! His wheel base is like 114". Of course the 10" wide wheels with 2" backspace didn't help either but you get my drift.
I welded up the front diff on my Montero, but the rear diff is open. It works fine.
I was just wondering about 2 welded/locked diffs and the turning. I'm gonna weld the front this weekend and just see how it works. Thanks for the input
