What is the primary use going to be? If it has fat tires and you plan on racing it maybe a change is in order.
Unless you’re running slicks, I don’t see anything bad happening. Good time to put a driveshaft loop on just in case though,
Your driveshaft is not a weak link, it will handle more than what your motor is putting out.
