It is your Jeep build it as you want!!! That being said.....I don't know much about everything involved, but unless you are only on the street, (and even than it would be iffy) you need about 8"-10" of lift!!! Upgrade axles, brakes, tranny, gearing, steering and IDK but maybe a motor swap if you are that far into it!!! That is a lot of tire wheel for the axles you have.

Of course you could cut/ highline the flares and body and they would "fit"!!!

Welcome Aboard! If you want to run 38" tires you will need to upgrade your axles.
