Upgrading your brakes is ALWAYS a good idea. Your braking distance is going to suffer big time with those big wheels, ESPECIALLY if you've got drums out back.

Your braking system is design to stop your truck, plus 5,000 pounds in a trailer.

Sure big tires, rims have some effect. But not a big effect. I am running 33" tires and have NOT noticed much difference in stopping power, and this is on a 20 year truck running the stock disc brakes up front, and stock drums in back.
