It looks like a good setup.
The next step up would be to get some kind of rear link suspension. Quadralink, Ride Tech, Speed Tech torque arm, or similar. A link rear will ride better and you gain some in handling too. In my mind, once you start looking at a rear leaf relocation kit, it's time to seriously consider a link suspension.
Your front suspension should work well. Next step up would be a new subframe which would gain you 2.5" per side more tire room.


You didn't mention if you have mini tubbed your rear. If you did, then getting enough rubber up front becomes difficult on a first gen.


You will need a good steering box
