How to select the correct V8 LandCruiser Wide Track Kit


If you're lucky enough to be the owner of a 70 series V8 Diesel LandCruiser, you'd know that the front diff is dramatically wider than the rear.

What's the difference? Try a massive 4 inches.

Of course, the good news is the guys at Snake Racing offer an affordable solution to this problem that will restore proper handling and safety both on and off the road, and that is the Wide Track Kit.

But which Snake Racing Wide Track Kit is the right one for you and your four-wheel drive?

The Wide Track Kits are available in either a 1 and 1/2 or 2-inch kit, and they're also specifically designed to suit either steel or alloy wheels. So it's critically important that you specify what type of wheel you're running when you order your Wide Track Kit.

Okay, so we know that we need to specify steel or alloy wheels when ordering our Wide Track Kit, but what about getting the right width?

The truth is the 1 and 1/2 inch or the 2-inch spacer will fit most models. However, there is a rule of thumb to follow in order to get the correct kit for your application. The 1 and 1/2 inch Wide Track Kit is the best option for your wagon or Troop Carrier as this will ensure that your tires remain covered by the factory bodywork. Or if you have flares, you may be able to get away with a 2-inch Wide Track Kit, but it will depend on the size of your tyres. The 2-inch Wide Track Kit is best suited to the cab chassis range as most trays will have more than enough width to keep your tires well within its outer edges.

Okay, let's have a quick recap.

We know that we need to specify steel or alloy wheels when ordering, and inch and a half kits are best suited to wagons and Troop carriers. If you've got a cab chassis, go with the 2-inch kit.
