Suspension for a 68 J truck

I am looking to make my old 68 into a good off-road/rock crawler. I am looking at running 38" or 40" tire on my rig. I will be moving the suspension under the frame and be doing a SOA to help with the lift. I was wounding what type of leaf spring system you would suggest. Thanks

What model? I would find a Jtruck frame from a newer model ('73 up) with your cab (maybe more) and use a Chev front axle (up till '87 were solid RH drop) for bolt in SOA.
