A 35 spline semi float 60 will hold up fine. 5 or 6 lug will hold up fine; just upgrade to bigger studs if you are concerned.

And, seriously, just narrow it later?! If you are saying that you have obviously never narrowed a front axle, bought, and built supporting components to do so. I just did one and probably have 60 hours in the shop putting it all together. Take 10 hours out for machine work on 6 lug and brake conversion and you are still alot of time. Plus, you get to buy new axles or pay to have existing axles done. I dont guess this is as big an issue on stock axles, but with most everyone going chromo it is a big cost savings. You also get to buy all new brackets and refab all of your suspension brackets since once you start cutting everything changes.
