Welcome to the forum.
Sounds like you've got enough lift anyway, hopefully it's long arms. You'll probably still want to do some wheel well trimming, and if you plan on any serious wheeling, bigger axles may be in your future.
I moved this thread to non-tech to encourage casual discussion of options.
