    Anyone know where that write up is, where you only lay down a few welds in the valleys of the spider gears? I know it was from a few years ago, and i dont think people are really using that method anymore, Im just trying to help somone out.

    The carrier splits in half on 14ff axles.

    When a buddy and I welded up my spiders, we filled every hole we could with either scrap metal or just welding it. After we were done, we had to grind it a bit to get it to fit into the carrier, but it works like a champ.
