Default 96 Bronco Welding Front Diff

I am going to be changing the fluid and was considering having someone weld it instead of a locker. Unfortunately I do not weld nor own the equipment.
Does anyone out there feel like helping with this?

wouldn't it be easier to weld mine that is in the axle. What exactly is involved when doing this and are there any negatives is should worry about. The only time I use the 4x4 on road is in the winter occasionally.

ever had a locker in front b4? you wont be in 4wd on a road in summer or winter. unless there is "alot" of snow! front lockers of any kind blow in the snow on a road. great on a trail though.
