brake physical abilities

i dont quite understand,

is it completely possible to use larger full size calipers and complete brakes with a stock ranger master cylinder? can someone help me understand the physics of this issue? would there be issues with the brake booster? im trying to problem solve an sas on my ranger and with a dana 44 i plan on running full size calipers and rotors.

as far as i can recognise the situation all i would need to do is plumb and bleed the lines with the larger brakes (because the brake lines all have the same fittings, i assume) i should have full travel out of my larger calipers. and the brakes should function normaly, as if they were stock. i would just be limited to how much pressure could be applied to the larger brakes because of the MC's capabilities.

is this correct? would there be any other complications excluding ABS?
