v6 3rd is stronger..... not easy to weld...... and if it breaks just put a 4cylinder 3rd

the V6 3rd is much stronger than a 4cyl, so you probably won't break it.

I would run a v6 3rd for sure. You can also put a 4cyl 3rd into your axle if you do break it and don't want to shell out for another v6.

the v6 3rd usualy sell for about $200 vs only about $50 for a 4cyl

Use the whole axle. The IFS rear axle is 3" wider than the older rear axles so it'll give you a little more stability. The IFS rear also has alot bigger brakes.

Then to match the width in the front swap your IFS wheel hubs, IFS calipers & FJ40 rotor onto your solid axle. Again this give you bigger vented disk brakes and more width.

let me know if you want to come take a look at my truck. I've done exactly as I described and so far no complaints. the extra width is great. Helped stop my tires from hitting the leafs at full turn too.
