I found with 4 1/2 total lift that on full stuff my 33's rubbed inside my front fenders, I did a high fender to overcome this.
I think you may find 35's a little snug with your setup.

^This. It wouldn't be the greatest idea to drive on the street but you'll be fine offroad. Correct me if I'm wrong but i believe that the dana 30 is a 4.11 and the 35 is a 4.10 stock from the factory.

Anyways for the tires, 35's are gunna rub pretty good with 4" of lift. Tube fenders will help but your still gunnna have to trim the rears or that sheetmetal will start to cut into your tread.

I fit 35s with 3" of lift up front with very very minor trimming, but the back will need some work but that ain't no thang!

Sheet metal bends way before it starts to cut into tires at least for me. I let my tires self clearance to see what needed cut out and not a scratch on my tires.

Gears. You can run .5 difference, do you could go 3.50 front and 3.55 rear and still be ok even on pavement and in 4wd.

That's what I was thinking as well. I have 2" with full stuff on 31s it's maxed out. I run no track bars and sway bar discos. For 35s I figured one needs 6" with TJ fenders or tube fenders plus trim.

I'm just going to throw the lift and tube fenders on, drive down to a tire shop and try on both 33 and 35, go from there. I did make a mistake getting YJ smitty rear tubes. Should have gone for TJ ones.

You will definitely need TJ rears to clear 35's. Front you can do tube fenders. You don't need 6" lift for 35's. I'll be doing it with 4.5" of lift SUA, some have done it with less lift. It's all about the fenders and trimming.
