Need advice on rear LT

I just finished installing an AP front LT kit. Now I am starting to think about SUA... Looking to do it right the first time. What kit or individual components would you buy?

Notes:
2010 Tacoma DBL Cab Long Bed
Front All-pro LT -w- tons of gussets on order
Running 33" tires.

Pics coming...

if you go the defined route you will be fine with the regular leaf pack, no need for his XL pack.

Thanks for the info. The defined kit looks super simple to install, just wasn't sure about how well it takes abuse and how well it performs compared to a peiced together custom kit.

for second gens its really not worth piecing them together since so many companies offer complete kits that will probably run cheaper than piecing it anyways
edit: mike has been running his kit for about 2 years IIRC and it has seen ALOT of abuse from chasing to just playing around in the desert. He's still running on his first set of leaf springs and theres no sign of sagging even with the weight in his bed.

It looks like his hoops are pretty much vertical... So shocks must be 16's
