Fj40 spacer question

Searched but did not find an answer to my question so here goes. I have a pair of 2" spacers and a pair of 1.5" spacers for the FJ40. Installed the 2" on the front and have a 64-64.5" track width (center of tires), the rear is the 1.5" spacers for a 63-63.5" track width (center of tires). Am I better off with more front track width, more rear, or run it square? It is SOA, 39.5 iroks, driven to the trail.

Thanks

Sean

I don't see a problem. The front is wider than the rear anyway. Keep an eye on the lugs holding the spacers on and also the trunion bearings in the knuckles.

Allot of guys run a narrower rear including me. A narrower rear allows the rear to make it around obstacles a bit easier.

my 2 cents
