You'd get the best of both worlds.
I really have been concerned mostly with straight line. I don't have any curves on my drive to work, lol.. and I don't know how good a solid axle Jeep would be in the curves anyway.

I admit, I am thinking about how much easier it would be to delete the t case and convert my trans to 2wd. Could use some off-the-shelf long tubes, with no front driveshaft and t-case to clear. Easier to make it narrow and tuck the tires.
