Looks identical to what I used to run.  See pic below.  He looks to have around a 3" gap between the top of the tire and the wheel well lip.  You will need either shock extenders or overall longer rear shocks.  Stock shocks will only give you about 1.5" to 2" of extension so your suspension will "top out" constantly with normal driving.  Also, your lower control arm will be at an extreme angle which can cause wheel hop problems.  But I do love that rake and ran like that for years.  Here's a pic of mine before I took it apart.

The front stance in my pic above was achieved with heavy duty big block springs with air conditioning. The rear were heavy duty from a wagon.
