I personally think it is way to much. I can stuff 35's under my 2" lift if i bumpstop correctly or cut my flares. In addition your gonna need something to adjust the axles to get them closer to stock such as drop brackets or new arms. Also at the pinion angle the stock driveshafts are gonna be having a bad time. But you can run them till they go boom. Most guys do. You SHOULD be ok with just adding drop brackets. Exhaust spacer if you plan on flexing. I know someone running a 4" rancho kit on a 4 door rubi and all he has in addition to the kit is drop brackets. And he runs 37's lol.
