For trail work. Any plans sliders or bumper work? Not that you necessarily need sliders for protection but done right they are a good lifting point and you could build in specific lifting points if desired. You could also weld on some attachments points to the frame and axle and fix a strong strap between them so the spring won't droop out. I carry both a high lift and a bottle jack with a selection of blocks depending on what the issue is on the trail. As you mentioned having a good base surface to lift from adds safety to sketchy situations. At least in our 60's there is decent room in the back to carry a couple extra things.
Would add some lift points but still A hi lift working at over 3ft which I’m not a huge fan of.

I carry a few lengths of 1/4” chain with threaded connector links to sling the axle to the frame to take up the suspension drop out when lifting with a hi-lift from bumper or sliders. A very strong ratchet strap will work too. Saves extending the whole suspension
Sorry to be redundant if this was this mentioned earlier
