Possibly building my own long arm kit

I have a buddy that can fabricate anything you could think of. He repairs and maintains heavy equipment by trade but does alot of custom fabrication. He's a modern day blacksmith. Lately we have been building him a 4 door Tundra that is a one of a kind.
We were talking about taking off my Full Craption lift and installing a long arm. I'm not sure what to go with and he suggested we just build it from scratch.
So my question is: If you were going to build yor own long arms fo your JK what would it include? and why?

3-link front and rear. High clearance arms. Proper instant and roll centers for the length, weight, and height of your vehicle.
Cool that you're building your own, but make sure you do the math first.

i think the boys over at Ballistic Fabrication would be getting a lot of business from me if i were to build my own kit.
