The Duff Arms are awsome thru and thru. Very Good quality.

The skyjacker arms are not bad either but I prefer the Heim Joints used on the Duff Stuff.

I keep reading the jeep springs are a good buy for flex.

The Jeep springs are crazy soft compared to "normal" TTB springs. I would go with a good progressive coil in fact I would spend the extra $100 and call deaver to have them build a custom set. Those typically run ~ $250 a set and are for sure worth it. At the end of the day however it is still a TTB and will never flex like a solid axle...

I have the entire Duff Stage 3 under my truck and prior to OCtober 2011 I was running a SJ Class 2 6 inch under the same truck. On the road the Duff kit rides alot nicer then it did with the SJ. I do like the progressive rate springs with the Duff kit.

:no2:

The TTB axle flexes plenty with the right springs on it. Unless you're building a ramp queen or a dedicated rock buggy, (IDGAF what anyone says) you don't need a solid axle.

If your "shortbed" is a regular cab, Skyjacker's 6" XJ coils (pt# JC-60F, IIRC) should work wonderful under that truck. I hope you have something planned out for your steering however, because those coils will NOT work well if the angles on your steering linkage are off...

You don't "need" a lifted truck. Solid axle's will outperform TTB's in a lot of offroad situations. That's all I was saying. You will never get even similar flex from a TTB that is just part of the independent suspension any "flex" typically gained is due to frame flex.
