    You could put an A.R.B. locker in it to lock it up, but then you would need an air compressor to run it and all the air lines ect.

    you don't have one if its a sr5. Get a rear locker first, front second if you still need more traction.

    do not do that. you will destroy tires on the street and the truck will be very difficult to turn in high traction environments.

    I repeat, do not weld the spiders on a daily driver.

    compromised on-road handling. I would only weld up a diff if its a trail only rig. (never will see pavement)

    Get a good selectable locker, not an automatic.

    Unless of course you don't want to spend the money, in which case asking TW for advice is totally useless.

    and we are just informing him drawbacks of that option...

    There is a big difference between welding the front vs. the back. If you weld the front the only time you will be locked is when you are in 4wd when you are wheeling, not when you are driving on the street.
