I know the tamiya's king hauler uses them and I believe the other big rigs they make do too. I dont know if thats wat u meant but. I think that some trucks could probably be modified but I dont know which ones, it would probably not be worth it though unless ur going mainly for looks

Tamiya Juggernaut uses leaf springs also. Leaf springs aren't the best for scale off roading though, they tend to be too stiff.

Leaf springs aren't even the best for full scale off-roading, they're utility springs and not very sporty.
