You can easily do just the front axle and put spacers on the rear. The axles are wider on the 80 series

I'm running 34's but 35's should fit easily

I’m running the home/booty fab version of this kit (this would have made things MUCH easier!). 35’s fit now as well as 33’s did with the leaves. You do get a little bit of tire kissing the fender at a fully turned stuff with the 80 series wheel, but not enough to worry about for occasional touching.

A wheel with more backspacing would help with this.

@torfab Hey Tor, would the front kit be adaptable to your Tundra rotor/caliper upgrade you did on my FJ60 front axle? We also did the 80 series rear axle. It sounds like the ride/handling would be a major improvement. The LS3/6L80 conversion kind of outruns the handling. Would doing just the front work?

The front upgrade alone will get you 95% of the benefits of the kit. The 80 series brakes are almost as big as the Tundra brakes, so you won't really notice any downgrade on that part.

Would it be possible to adapt the kit and use the existing 60 axle? I realize it would be more fabrication for the axle mounting brackets, but the 60 axle is upgraded with locker and chrome molly hafts and birfs.
