And I want leaf springs. I think they will hold up a little better and you can have a set made for cheap. With the setup I have now with the flat bed, tools, welder, torch, and two 75 gal L tanks the truck weight 12,870#. And that's if there are no parts on it. I'm not worried about adding weight it. I just need to hold up to the constant weight of the truck it self.

The most off road that truck will ever see is a little mud checking cows and or rough water way. It will never see an off road park or sand dunes. But I did think about putting an air locker in the front if I actually do the SAS.
yep should be drivers drop kingpin 60.
