38" tire and stock components

Hey guys im not sure of anyone that has done this yet and lasted so i wanted to see if anyone on here knows.

Im building my truck for overlanding and wish to go with 38" tires with just a leveling kit. it can be done with some custom cutouts which im willing to do but im worried about the stock IFS. Do you guys think with proper gearing that ill have to worry about the IFS blowing up on me while on the trails?

Ill be upgrading my tie rods and obviously the internal gears when i re gear the truck. what else should i be worried about?

solid axle swap is what you need....any hard stress on those IFS suspensions and somethings snapping
