    Welcome to the site!! As long as you dont do much hauling with the truck, I dont see any problem there. Remove one of the middle ones though.
    Don't take this the wrong way, but the truck is 20 years old and you could look into findin a newer model also.

    The leaf removal sounds good but it will also lower the rear some. The new shocks might work well in front due to the load up there but might be to stiff for the rear with no load.
