I would get the Diff. drop. Its cheap and might save your boots. I did the same set up w/o the diif. drop and my boots started leaking grease so I filled them up and put hose clamps from lowes on them and bought a diff drop. No problems since. Also tire size can play on the suspension as well, so I would recommend no bigger than a 32' or 265/75/16 tire.

It's really the boots that suffer, not so much the CV joints themselves. You are generally good into the 2-2.5" range, or 2.5-3" with higher angle boots. The CV's don't really care, though there is some anecdotal evidence to indicate that they are a bit easier to snap at higher angles, especially if you are spinning them and stopping them hard on the trails.
