    mines a daily driver and it's welded. the offroad benefits out weigh the cons of a welded diff /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    Me likes!

    remember though, with a detroit if you step on the gas while turning, it will lock and will act just like a welded diff. As soon as they get an arb for a 14FF, I'm awn it!
