Are you using strictly off road or is it going to be driven on the street? If you plan on using it on the street you might want to consider the locker. Welded rear end will cause problems with the axles and tires.
Have you floated away with all the rain in Sonoma County?
I use to live in Petaluma, Healdsburg and then Santa Rosa until 9/15 when I retired from SSU and moved to Idaho.

I'd say 85/15 I will be trailering it to the ohv parks but there are some cool local spots that is more convenient to just drive there an a couple mountains you can drive up to the snow which is what I was wondering about how's the welded doffs going to be just driving in 4hi up a icy paved an dirt roads? An ha almost I'm in the right there between Windsor an healdsburg an it was pretty bad around here but really bad west towards the coast all roads flooded an closed glad its over was a pain
