Default Gen 1 swb front locker

Ok guys so if memory serves me correctly there is no front locker available for a gen 1 swb.

So my shorty has a 4d56t and iv just bought an na with 4d55 which should have the 5.2 diff gears so I can run bigger tyres with decent gearing.

Before I fit the diffs Iím seriously considering fitting manual front hubs and welding the front diff centre to lock it.
My theory is that I can just unlock 1 or both hubs when I donít want the front locked.

If there was an off the shelf locker option Iíd happily buy it as I donít mind spending the $$$ ... unfortunately as far as I know there isnít...

So my question is, will it work? Anyone ever done it? Pros and cons?

Keep in mind, my shorty is a weekend only toy with big lift and big tyres .

Definitely hard to come by, but I believe you have two options: a Kaiser auto-locker, or there's a mob in Greece that have a listing for (I think) the Pajero iO, which I believe uses the same size front diff.

500 Euro plus shipping plus GST plus fitting?
