Rear Coilover lift ?

This may sound stupid but I wanted to ask anyways. Will a rear Coilover setup handle woops, and jaring off road better than leaf setup? Also will I have more control over the truck with a leaf setupor the coilover set up?
Thanks
Nick

Yes, coilovers would be 100x better than leaf spring's. They'll offer way more travel, way better dampening, and you won't break your back if you do jump the truck like you would with the leaf's.

Yeah I though if I got them I would design some airbags that I could easily remove when i am not towing.
