    Guys,
    I have an extra 10 bolt front axle and thought it would be interesting to weld the spiders solid. How would it steer? What would break? Would it work or bind bad while turning? I lincoln locked my rear axle and that works good. Just thought I'd save some time and ask if anyone has tried it? If it won't work what's the best locker for it?

    it would be a pain to steer on hard stuff with your hubs locked. 2 or 4 wheel drive. but you can easily turn with one or both hubs unlocked.
