Default To Cut and turn or not?

So here is the setup. I have some 87 fj60 axles and plan on running 33" tires and a spring under setup that will give me 2 to 4" of lift. These are going under a 69 cj5 with a dauntless 225, T18 and Dana 18. The stock springs/shackles are junk. Out boarding the frame mounts/shackles with a yj or old man emu style lift come to mind
I want flex off road and control on the road using sway bars.
What I do not want is vibration at 70 mph(yes this belly scraper that will have most of the body missing--think of a tube buggy cj-- and will spend most of its time on the street.) I plan on running double cardon joints to help with this.

I do plan on beating on this thing and skid plates larger shafts/ox or arb lockers and moly shafts are in the plan.
Yes I am dumping a bit of cash into this one.

Now that you know the background. Should I do a cut and turn or can I simply get away welding on new perches and turning the carrier up.
