    what are you building your truck to do? street rig? trail rig? rocks? sand? what size tires do you want to run? Basically, to give a worthwhile answer, we need more info...

    Remember that there is a bunch of other stuff you will need to do to get that setup to work. Crossover steering, longer driveshafts (probably with a cv shaft in the rear), brake lines, etc. If you take care of all that your setup sounds good.
