Icon5 leafSpring thickness?

Ive noticed some stock 2wd rangers with thicker leafsprings then mine...I was looking at trents work n progress and noticed how beefy they look...

I have like 3 leafsprings?? Any clue why

And do Rangers leafs all differ from model and year????

Sorry no pic

yes there are differences but I am not sure of where the differences occur. I am preeeetty sure that cab and engine size will predict this for one.

the leafs are thicker on the 2wd leafs, but the 4wd leafs are about 1" taller and flex better.

i have leafs off a 2003ish 4x4 on my truck.
