3rd Gen Taco Chevy 63s Leaf Spring Swap

Looking to pull some more travel out of my 3rd Gen rear suspension! For a stock truck, (just trd pro lift) it has a decent amount of travel but I seem to pick up a wheel almost the instant I get out on the rocks, even with my 35s!

Been doing a fair bit of research and this looks like my best bet.
Can be a budget build or a premium build depending on what parts I pick up and if I do the work entirely myself or not.

Looking to find some others' opinions on kits and different ways to get extended travel.

Has anybody done this swap on here? And is there any better information on measurements and designs besides this write-up linked below? Preferably not TW as I just filtered through a billion years of bullshit and found nothing helpful.

Random Truck I found with this setup

Looks like a ford extended travel brace and Bilstein shocks.
