Default "DualSport" Trike suspension

So ive been kicking the idea of making a dual purpose Xl trike. Fire roads, select trails etc... Paugcho swingarm kit, heavy duty upgrade to wide glide forks, chain conversion.... Question is what would you all suggest for my rear suspension.... progressive 413s be sufficient? 15"??
Let me hear what you think
Cheers
Ox

Rear suspension should be independent for better off-road control. There was a reason the cycle manufacturers quit making ATCs and went to ATVs. What ever you come up with it'll be a he11 of a lot of fun!
