The Eurobike Rumors: AXS Suspension, 1.8'' Steerer Tubes, a SRAM Motor, Fox's 38mm Fork - Eurobike 2019
Play around with this online engineering calculator to see how much difference you get when going from 36mm to 38mm. Back-of-the-envelope calcs are enlightening. https://skyciv.com/free-moment-of-inertia-calculator/ Stiffness correlates with Moment of Inertia. - Iz and Ix are the same here (representing resistance to bending by an external force at the fork leg) - For a 36mm stanchion, 1.5mm thick: Iz = 12906 mm^4. (assumes D=36, d=34.5) - For a 38mm stanchion of the same weight, 1.42mm thick: Iz = 14463 mm^4 (assumes D=38, d=35.58... slightly thinner to keep A the same....) So from 36 -> 38mm you get more than 13% additional stiffness.

Seatstays are 1-piece too at the shock mount. So you'd have to disassemble the frame halves the same way anyways.

Identiti Updates the Mettle Enduro Bike With Longer and Slacker Geometry Tweaks
@mountaindoctor: Yep, within reason. Bottom bracket location is in that equation too. Try to grow the reach too much and you can't compensate enough with STA and stem length. Pedals need to be far forward enough of the seat to generate force. And feel correct in and out of the saddle.
