Just had a post up today and yesterday about the snow and ice... It is kinda a opinion deal. I'd also be interested how it is on dry pavement and for tire wear

Mines welded and I drive about 50 miles a day. I havent gotten any snow yet, but it should be about the same as a locker. My tires are wearing a little quicker than when I had the lock right in the rear, but the cost of the amount of wear negates the cost of a locker, so I dont mind. The chirping isnt too bad either. When my tires were new it seemed to chirp real bad, but now that they are broken in it seems to chirp less.

i have a detroit in mt heep and it is'nt too bad in the ice if you use common sense. but the poping get annoying on dry pavement.
My 14 is welded...I like it just fine and there's no annoying popping or banging. I find it's very predictable and with common sense is no problem in the snow. It does wear the rear tires more than an open diff...but how much is determined by how much tight city driving you do vs. hwy driving.
