You should be just fine... But consider now that your stock shock is now stretched out... So it loses a bit of the recovery capability... I upgraded both front and rear shocks and noticed a HUGE difference...

Personally I would, but NO, you don't need to

If you do decide to upgrade shocks, the Billy 5125s are nice as well as the OME N182s and aren't terribly priced.

I have the 3" revtech lift (sucks by the way) and towed a mastercraft x9 all summer with no issues. This is with my stock shocks so i assume you should be fine. I found the truck a bit under powered when towing but its to be expected with a stock v6.
