I am looking to add a 4 jaw chuck to my 9 inch Atlas lathe. Would an 8 inch chuck be too large for this due to how the jaws need to extend out at times? What size should I get if not that then ...a 6 inch? Currently it has a 6 inch three jaw on it. Thanks in advance.

6" is the most versatile. I've been thinking about picking up a 5" six jaw, since it costs less and covers 90% of my tinkering, but that would an accessory to the must-have 6" four jaw and the handy-but-not-precise 6" three jaw I already have.
