Default Lifting it soon

Ok i actully bought this a month ago but havent installed it yet. It has a 2inch kit that was on the truck allready i belive and i cranked the t-bars up a bit. anyways i'm gonna install the kit soon and crank up the t-bars a bit more. well my question is do i have to get a shift extention ? I have the 5-speed. heres some pics of the kit i'm gonna install and its a cheap one i bought at advance auto for 25bucks.

That is just to lift the rear end up so you wont need a shift extension only if you were doing a body lift u would then

Cranking the t-bars u can only fit a 32" max

U would need a body lift for 33's to fit with no rubbing except under extreme flex
