another 10 bolt question!

I'm putting another s10 (a '91 long bed) together and this one has a modded 2.8L (putting out about 190 hp) with a 5 speed and a 10 bolt. It is also lifted 2" and has 33" "all weather" tires.

I'm planning on swapping over to a 4.56 gear set (so I can use 5th gear again!) adn putting in a mini-spool while I have it apart since they don't make a full on racing spool for the newer 10 bolts. My question is weather or not I'll have to swap axles. I know running a sini spool on the street is not really a "smart" idea but niether is a lot of the things I do. Considering my fairly low power output and relatively tractionless tires (compared to slicks) should it hold up alright with stock axles?
