I have the same thing but on the other side. When I did it I just popped the wing back in place.

Looking good Mikey
Are you really thinking about a front locker and gears? . Are you planning on 35's ? I'm not sure what gears will get you, with just running 33's Once you get down into low, it just doesn't seem to make that big of an impact .
The locker is a pretty big commitment. CV axles really don't like lockers. You can look forward to some repair bills if you decide to lock it.

I am just going by the thought that you will be challenging yourself and your truck. You are definitely in that mode. Nothing wrong with it, as long as you begin the process of learning how to replace these things, so repair bills don't include shop labor. Not locking mine was a decision I made for a few reasons
A) It was expensive to do
B) It's hard on front end parts.

If you use it as an occasional "tool in the box" and remember what binding will do, you may be ok. Just remember to look at the chain of "weak links", as you modify
