Have you considered running coils on the rear, and leafs on the front? It would be a little stronger, not to mention easier... But then again you might not be a lazy a$$ like me. HA HA

First of all this is another project of mine its a 90 yj. I'm putting a tpi 350,700r4 in it. I like the flex & ride of coils plus I've got friends
that help a lot with the fab work. I had 88 yj with a springover & half ton running gear. I bent several sets of springs

For my buddie's YJ we did a custom long-arm 4-link in the rear of his Jeep. He runs a twin-propane tank where the seat used to be. It weighs a ton!

We originally set it up to run XJ front coils, but they sagged out from the weight too quickly. We have since converted the rear coils to stock F150 front coils, and so far they are holding up to the weight well.
