    would a 4 inch TC EZ ride springs on both front and rear, with the revolver shackles, 35in tires, cut fenders if needed produce a good amount of flex?

    In order to use Revolvers, you have to use a shackle flip. The shackle flip will give you 4'' of lift by itself, so you wouldn't need the springs for the rear. If you do order Revolvers, you will have to use the ones meant for a jeep cherokee because they don't make them for fullsizes anymore. I personally don't like them because you cannot lock them in place so that they don't open up in situations where you don't want them to. That setup will offer plenty of flex if you modify shock mounts and use some seriously long shocks. Have you looked into the springer setup?

    A 4" EZride front with a flip in the rear and stock spring should work pretty well for you, I've run around 1000 on a 20 degree ramp which is still pretty good. And simple. And doesn't have problems with axle wrap or unloading on side hills.

    making revolvers lock-able would not be a real engineering challenge. If you (or a buddy) can weld, you could prolly add some quick disconnects to them in 30 mins.
