You'll need extended brake lines (1 front & 1 rear). You'll need to address the steering- drop pitman arm / crossover steering / etc. You'll have to address the drive line angle (clock ring / etc. & have a new drive shaft made. Depending on how / where you want to use it you may have to cut the inner C's off of the axle housing, rotate and reweld them.

Sounds like a monster! Better consider some anti wrap bars with tires that big.

Check out Ruff Stuff, they have a lot of parts for off road stuff like an anti wrap kit. You can order them with whatever size D.O.M. tube you may want. I've had one in the garage for almost a year now, I got it on a year end sale last year. They also offered a discount if you have a Pirate 4x4 login I think.
