How many days per week are you guys deadlifting. Right now I am DL'ing once a week on Monday and then squatting on Friday. Is this enough or should I DL twice a week?

I'd beat the tar out of myself deadlifting twice per week.

I think once a week is plenty. If you are making progress keep doing what you are doing.

I Squat and pull on the same day but alternate speed and heavy work each week. i also wave my pull with percents and exercises.

Monday: Heavy Squat
Wed: Deadlift variants (RDLS, Stiff leg sumos, conventional band pulls, pulls off blocks) Try for competition style PR every 6 weeks
Friday: Light squat with special bar (ssb, cambered bar, front squat harness)

Most weeks I deadlift twice. It's rarely a competition style deadlift though. I use a lot of deadlift variants and reps. There's a huge difference between a competition style max and SLDL for sets of 5.

i pull full range of motion every week on my speed days and every other week on heavy days. the weeks i don't pull full range of motion on my heavy day i pull from pins just below my knees. and i change up my stance once or twice a month from sumo to conventional to make my muscles work differently.
