Well... If i could start over.
I would fix any rust issues and put frame stiffeners on first.
Just guessing, but I'm pretty sure it might see a rock or to. So i would do the rocker replacement with 2x6.
Don't forget to buy some armor, or fab it up, mainly something covering your transfer case for now.
Now is a good time to decide on your long arms. I'm not going to make this decision for you.
No add a leaf, no blocks.
Rc leaf packs are known to be short and cause bad shackle angles.

O yea... We like pictures.
