Your leaf pack appears to be flat.
With what appears to be a crease in your exhaust pipe.
and articulation is limited by the stock anti-sway still attached.
Rear stock bumpstop could be replaced by a Timbren to gain more cushion on up travel.

You will gain additional clearance with a new leaf pack and the removal of the stock trailer hitch(hitch can be integrated with rear bumper).

IMHO might wanna tackle some of those before adding the additional weight of a tank and water load.

9 gallons will add an additional 75 pounds
12 gallons will add an additional 100 pounds

after a little more thought, you may also want to relocate the evap canister if the tank is to be permanent in location.
if not then the water tank may need to be dropped out when you need to change the evap canister. it is a least worth considering while doing all of you measurements.
