I think you might be happier with the shocks with more travel and more downtravel, especially if you are going to be keeping your truck lower to the ground and with less fender clearance.

Looks like you ought to be able to mount airbumps inside the coils if the dimensions work out alright. Otherwise you might be able to mount them to the frame and weld the contact plates onto the axle tubes.
Can't wait to see your truck working!
