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.
