Default 07 DS questions about 8"-10" lift install

I have a DS and thinking of putting the 8"-10" lift with 25"-28" tire, what is the minimum upgrades I should do for the controller and motor. I know I will have to upgrade my cables to 4 gauge.
What other upgrades are recommended so I will be able to putt around on mostly level surfaces down here in South La. Not many hills other that loading onto the trailer.
I have been building custom carts as a hobby but have never gotten into the motor/controller upgrades as of yet.
I have attached a picture of the cart I want to install the lift on give me your thoughts.
Thanks...

It will take more amperage to get the wheels moving from stop when you have larger tires on it. With that being said most stock CC controllers are 300 amp. I upgraded mine to a 400amp and have not had an issue. Most in here are using 500 and 750. I got 400 just because I was able to send my old on and have it referbed by FSIP and upgraded pretty cheap compared to a new controller. BUT some of the new controllers that are 500 and higher have lots of cool programmable features that are nice!

I'm not 100 percent sure but on my 91 ds I had too upgrade too a hd forward reverse switch and 400 amp solenoid, is your cart series? You will have a forward reverse level if so, rocker switch if not. Also I would go to 2gage cables with that big of a tire it's prob gonna generate a lot of heat cause that's a lot of tire to turn and it will kill your tourque but on flat land you should be fine...
