I did the 3/4 ton swap, and now have a 28 spline 10 bolt with 4.10s in the front (old axle was 6 lug 30 spline with lockright and 3.73s). I wanna lock it up, but don't want to spend 300ish dollars on another lunchbox locker for a 10 bolt. I've narrowed it down to putting in a minispool or welding it. The minispool will run me about 100 bucks, but I can install it myself. A friend taking welding at school told me if I gave him my truck for the day he could take it to his teacher and get him to weld it up. I was thinking I could just pull the carrier and give him the carrier to take to his teacher. If I did this could I drive the truck with no front carrier? Manual Hubs, would be unlocked of course. What do yall recommend? I've got a tired 350 and low tread 38.5s. Almost all wheeling I do is mudding, and I know this is not the most bulletproof combo, but definately can't afford a 60 right now unless you got one for 200 bucks you wanna give me. But if you do shoot me a pm.
