500 stroker chassis beef-up Q

This is my first stroker build, hell my first engine build from the ground up. I have never built the bottem end of a motor and want to ask twice and build once. Any advice will be well appreciated. Last week I picked up a 77' 440 that I would like to drop in my 74' W200 3/4 ton 4x4. Apon tearing it down I found that it is one of the few 440's with the thicker main bearing saddles and support webbings, so why not make my first complete build a stroker. I plan on taking it to the shop to get it tanked, magnafluxed, bored .030 over, honed, lined bored and honed, square decked, and retaped for the larger hemi oil pickup. Probaly have them enlarge the oil galley connected to the lifter galley that feeds the bearings and grind the clearance for the stroker crank as well. The stroker kit I plan on picking up is the one found from 440source with the flat top pistons (http://www.440source.com/strokerkits.htm). For the top end I planned on picking up the Eddy top end performer rpm power package (intake, 84cc heads, cam) which is ranged from 1500-6500 rpm's and a 800cfm dual feed thunder series AVS. My truck is running dana 60 full floater w/4.10 in rear, dana 44 full floater w/4.09 in front, a divorced 205 t-case and 235/85 trailcutter tires on 16" rims (not shown in pix). This truck will not be a rock crawler or a towing rig. It will be used for the occasional mud race, mud bog, winter storm driving, and the weekend warrior. Now that you got the info, here are most of my questions.

7. Any other improvements I should make to my chassis?
