The rear axles are plenty stout. The 8" axles are commonly used for V8 swaps. I'm not familiar with the 8.2 but it looks like they went to it for 2010+ and it should be even stronger. The front diff is quite a bit weaker--it's probably the 7.5" ring gear with the aluminum differential case. A long-travel front kit probably comes with longer, hopefully stronger front axle shafts. Be careful if you use a differential locker in the front--that puts a lot more stress on the half-shafts and CVs. If you leave the front differential open, it's less likely to break something.
