You don't say what engine, for a 6 cylinder I'd go 4.56's, and for a 4 cylinder 4.88's. 35's is really pushing the limits on stock axles. 33's and a 1" Daystar body lift would be much better. There's nothing good about a 3" body lift in my opinion.

Regearing is definitely better left to the pros, if you have to ask, I wouldn't even consider attempting it.

I can pick my way over a trail with the guys on 35-37" tires on my 33's as I'm on stock axles, and don't have those huge pumpkins to drag over everything. <damn I wish I had that problem>

If you're really gonna go with 35's, carry spare axle shafts with you.

No you cannot do the work by your self. It is not for the beginner mechanic, unless you want to screw it all up. A shop will charge you around $1000 for both axels. I assume you have a 2.5, if so you probably want to go to 4.88's to keep the power band.
