Axles, gears, and tires

Okay so I am about ready to run 33/1250/15's on my 94. I do moderate to difficult wheeling on a regular basis so it's not like I will just be on pavement all the time. I have a 27spline 8.25 in the rear and a hp 30 up front. Do / should I get stronger axle shafts for either axle and or gears?

I would look into swapping the 8.25 for one with 29spline shafts.

Other than that I wouldn't upgrade components until your sure about what is going to fail first.

I would also seriously look into regearing for the new tires.
