Rear LT Tundra Axel swap

Are there any issues or concerns with a rear tundra axel swap to match to front +3.5" kits. Not an expert, so maybe there's some things i need to consider...?

I believe 1st gen tundras are 6 lug 5.5" pattern like the 2nd gen tacomas..
But are they 7" wider than 2nd gen tacomas or 1st gen?

Can i just weld my spring perches on and bolt on my leafs?
If nothing else i figure some sensor or combobulator will throw a code..
I'm coming up short on literature with my search button, please school me,
Has anyone done it?

Seems like most of you LT guys are running rear wheel spacers?
anyone with over 1.5" spacers ?

The tundra axle is only like an inch wider than your axle

1.5'' spacers in the back here, would not go wider.

This.
66" 1st gen Tundy vs 65" 2nd Gen Tacoma.
1st gen Tacoma is 60" though so it matches LT kits on 1st gen's well, in which case it's pretty much set up spring perches and drop it in I believe.
Jberry813 did the swap in his LT 1st gen.

Every person with a 05 up taco runs wheel spacers to clear shocks, nobody runs a tundra axle becuase its not worth it only roughly a inch wider per side.
