What axles to run with 35\'s?

Should I build up the stock axles or just go straight to toyota housings and axles?

What would be my best choice to do to a stock Zuk to run 35's?

Thanks!

You could do the Trail Tough's Double Tough axles up front, if you wanted to stay with stock axles. They will hold up pretty good. A hybrid rear for sure. But for the money you spend on building sami axles you could go to yota axles, throw some Longfields in the front for $230 and should you shouldn't have a problem with breaking. That is what I did and I absolutly love it. Not have to worry about axle strength is nice!

Run a search of 35's. There is a lot of information available on the site. Just for general information, 35's weigh a ton and the stock axles will not handle them consistently. If you are at all heavy-footed or anticipate doing any rock crawling, go ahead and go Toyota now. If you stay stock, you are going to bust axles and b-rings. That's my nickel.

35's + Zuk axles + wheeling = carnage.

IMHO, the best bang for your buck and time are Toy axles. It is a pretty straight forward swap, cheap and stronger than any of the aftermarket axles. There is good info here:

If you dont want as much DIY and scrounging and the cost doesn't scare you, the TT or spidertrax axles are a nice option.
