A little outsider input

So after another annoying encounter with axle wrap today, i am finally in a mode to get my rear axle under control.

end game i would like to have 0-1" of lift and my rear end under control.

first direction: buy a James duff over leaf track bar and then install a belltech 6400.

second direction (im not entirely sure it will work for me) pull my rear leafs and lift block buy some 4-door explorer leafs, strap in an add-a leaf, and some belltech 6400's.

(Im not sure if it matters but my truck is an 02 with the 4-leaf tow setup)

My question is which direction should i be going in, is there an option better than the other? im ready to start getting this build going again, any and all help is much appreciated

Intense rear end hop, especially in sand. Plus friends outside the truck can see the axle tipping forward and backward. its not a severe problem but it can do some damage, and our trails up here are sandy so you run into that problem alot.
