    alright for any one that ever thought of welding they're 14 bold and useing a cut downshaft to cap the hub....don't do it unless you wanna have really bad torque steer and bu able to spin your 35 over 50 feet(thats what mine will do /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif)

    Mines welded, it gets driven on the street, and it is fine. If I was worried about tire wear I wouldn't own a set of Swampers, I would have some Goodyear Roadhandlers or something.
