After a few days of deliberation, I pulled the trigger. 3.5-4" leaf springs from Doug (4WD), BAMF shock relocator, 12" King smooth body resi's, All-Pro SS brake lines and new bumps.

SUA ftw
Technically the defined and any other SUA company is making has a custom pack that is still essentially a production and or a pallet spring. I wasn't asking for all his secrets however there has to more than hey trust me. I just need more info, how many leafs, thickness of the leafs how many stages, and etc. That is the basic information that one would want to know. With what I have seen here I might as well just go a custom set of springs it is just as cheap as a set of production Deavers like I said above. The custom springs are always custom and can be modified in any way I want them later down the line, if I decide to do long travel with bed cage etc.
