Wheelbase gets bigger. Won't be able to turn around in as small a space as the jeep can when on it's factory width axles.
The larger axles would most likely have larger breaks, and the jeeps breaking system...ie...booster, master cylinder...would need to be upgraded.
And the pinion on larger axles would most likely be longer, resulting in shorter driveshaft(s).
