Full with...what leaves to use?

Well i decided im going to find some d60's(at least a d44 front), and going to go full width. got the ok from my g/f that as long as i keep it low i can do it.
so im wanting to run leaves, tire size will prolly be 35's-37's. im only wanting about 4" lift over stock, and im going to cut the fenders to gain the rest of the clearance i need.

should i go with the shackle in the front so i can keep it low, or should i go with a shackle reversal set up? also i really liked my jeep with d60's and waggy springs in the front that extended my wheelbase, but didnt run them in the back...but i want to move the front axle forward about 2" and the rear about 2-4" and do a comp style cut. im stumped on which springs to go with. i want it soft for flex, but not so soft where it has bad street manners. next year ill be gettin a tow rig, so it wont be a dd all that much.

anybody have any suggestions?

i got a good source on some 60's out of a 79 ford, and i just started a new job, so ill have some $$ to get this project going. hopefully i can have everything ready to start by christmas time

i got to searching and looking around, im going to keep the stock wheelbase but im pretty set on running leaves up front, because i can get a set for next to nothing. how do the yj springs ride in a b2?

i really like how they have this set up, and this is what im going for except i want leaves and it to sit about 3-4" lower
