How is this gonna affect driving on icy paved roads in 4wd?
and does anyone have a good pic of where I need to weld on a 3.9 diff?

In a straight line, it'll hook up and go.
To get it turned you're really going to have to pitch the car into the the corner and drive it sideways.

You want to look for a GL-10 Full Time 4WD Turbo 5 speed. These and the RX have the LSD.

Welds are just fine. Hooks up AWESOME in snow. Understeers bad on ice because unlike a locker that has give, a weld has no give.. the end result is "slide-ways"
Basically in corners, the outside tire spins a bit more than the inside. Lockers are designed to accept the change. Welds aren't, The inside tires will generally break loose by the difference in tire rotation speed on the outside tire. It sorta helps it go sideways.
For snow only.. definately the way to go..
Ice.. Well.. I definately have yet to get an LSD.. I'll definately be getting one.
My opinion is... get both.
