I have seen three done this way, a landcruiser, toyota mini, and a sami.
The cruiser and mini survived a 2500km tour of Alberta with lots of wheeling, the sami never made it out of regina.
I think it's due to the design of the sami carrier, it's hard to weld both sides.
But the two toyota's are going strong still.

Lover my welded spool. A little hard on the tires. Wore out the half the tires on my rig this season and it's only a weekend driver.

The man is right. Unfortunately you have to go up to at least 30 to quiet things down a little. I was running 22 f+r but it sounds ridiculous. Now I go about 32 in the back and it's pretty quiet but drives like a tank. I'd better do that spring swap pretty soon I guess.

Tire wear? You're gonna kill 'em. It's worth it.

Higher pressures are better with a spool or welded diff, but if you are the least concerned about how much milage you get out of a set of tires, then this might not be for you.
