Call me crazy, but I wouldn't. I wouldn't want to have that wide of a stance unless I could dedicate the truck to a permanent dessert toy and had a shit ton of money to throw at it

You're crazy

Then again, this is coming from someone who fantasizes about one day turning my truck into a purely dedicated race truck… And that same person who doesnt have any sort of long travel at all yet. So my opinion might be different from yours.

Lot's of leverage to twist your frame rails even more than a normal 3.5" kit already does.

Depends on how much chromoly and gusseting is involved, if it's being built to be like a trophy truck you should equally strengthen it.
