The front brakes are part of the Solid knuckle/hub conversion so its 3/4 ton rotors with 1/2 ton Chevy calipers instead of the Ford style. The rear is a Chevy style disc setup, so it should be ok for quite a bit larger tire than a 38.

Last night sandblasted f/r axles. I think that whoever decided it was a good idea to undercoat the rear should rethink that before doing it again!! Rear is finish welded.
Dynatrac tone rings arrived, looks good for a press fit on the rear, the front hubs will be getting turned down to accept front rings this week. This SHOULD make the ABS and traction control/speedo work! If not I'll always say it should have!!
Current lingering questions??? Will the front axle go in as is, or will I have to shorten the short side to gain more room for drive shft clearance around the trans oil pan?? We shall see!!
