Ok guys need help drastically here....

I read online that if I weld the gears in my front diff that it will become a locker.

So I did, but now it wont move!!!!!! Ive welded em up just like they said. Now in 4x4 it wont move and in 2wd all it does is skid the front tires!!!! GRRRR spring is coming and I really really need to get this fixed!!!!!

Ive attached a picture to show you what I am talking about.......





PLEASE HELP!!!!!!

Weld the ring gear to the pinion gear? I don't see how that could ever move? I've welded many a spider gear in my day but never the pinion to the ring gear.that wolu lock it down where it won't move at all.

They told me to weld the 2 gears together and it would be a full locker diff... Thats what I needed so I did it! Man I really need to get this fixed! Spring is on its way up here and have a big ride planned in less then a month!

Trips just remember to full bead weld. None of that tacking bs. Tack welds will brake under stress.
