    Aftermarket BEEF!
    Get On ORD's web site and spend 1500 on the front for axels, hubs, differential, hub fuzes to help save thoes 297 Ujoints cuz anything bigger than a 35" on 1/2 ton you are gonna bust a ujoint from time to time. As for the rear new axels and diferential is realy all you can do, well oversized driveshaft too and some kind of truss....
    You perty much need to get rid of the stock guts and go aftermarket.
    Then you will need to learn throtle control when wheeling to help prevent the POP that will occur with thoes big tires....
    Good Luck
