Yea but you still want the road manners since you drive it daily.

As far as I know, he has a curry anti rock sway bar. obviously its not a pressing need, and the wider axles will be more stable as well /topic

Even if you want travel, the shocks are going to be the limiting factor, no matter where you put them. Then the leaf springs follow as the next item to limit travel. If you size your shocks properly, then it really wont matter where you put them. The outboard shocks however do give stability to body roll.
If you outboard the shocks then he has to get longer travel shocks as they are mounted further out on the axle. And proper length shocks will not be the limiting factor in a suspension. there are plenty of shocks he could run that would have more travel then the leafs would.
