I did did a 3" spacer on my 2.7 with manual hubs and I haven't seen any problems without the diff drop. Basically, it makes minimal difference and it decreases your ground clearance.

The benefit of the diff drop is minimal on ADD, and near non-existent for your application. Unless you are running in 4wd close to 100% of the time, you shouldn't worry about it.

You do not need the diff drop. I believe the key to longer CV life is keeping them dirt free. Do not allow dirt to sit between the fins for very long. I hose mine off after every trail run, and just now am I starting to notice a groove in the inner boot.

I have had no issues with my Downey lift and my manual hubs.
All you'll do is loose ground clearance with a diff drop.

Don't waste your time or money with the diff drop.
