You might wanna get gears before putting on 35 inch tires. Unless you like having the most capable looking vehicle around that bogs down on the first hill.

I don't think you need that much lift to fit 35" tires. IN fact, I know you don't.

I'd say take it slow and do your homework...learn about all known bugs with the system before setting it up. I did that with my XJ and I'm so happy. I could have gone to 8" but I did what was not only affordable, but I went to the highest lift I could get away with and not kill the Jeep.

Biggest question...How well do you know your rig?

I agree with Lars, the 4" lift and 1" body lift is all you need, Maybe some fender trimming. Definitly no shackle lift , anything more then 3/8" or so shackle lift will screw up you handling. Any more then a 1" body lift will cause stress cracks in the body and cracks around the body mount holes( and it look ridiculous,IMO).
If you really want to be that tall, you may want to consider a SOA.

I'm with PYRO, get a 2.5 in lift kit and spring it over. If I was you I'd go 4" springs sprung over with 1" body and get a set of 38.5 SX's That'd be way cool.
