Although high steer isn't necessarily needed, I highly recommend going for it. It'll keep your steering angles a lot better, and it'll save you from all the trouble hitting the tierod on the rocks and tree stumps all the time. Stock steering is crappy anyways, so it needs to be addressed.
33s are NOT a tight fit on 4.5" lift by no means, unless for some reason you don't like to trim fenders. 35 x 12.50s fit pretty easily under 3-4" of lift with trimming and proper bumpstopping (and yes, you will have around 4" uptravel with that kind of setup). 33 , 10.50s will work perfect. I suggest to adjust CA lengths slightly longer than recommended by around 1". Depends on your overall setup though.
As was mentioned, shackle relocation brackets and a SYE + double joint driveshaft are more than likely required.
