You can do the 35" at 3" and l;ots of trimming so 5" no problem. 5" of lift you should plan to need a new Adjustable trackbar, longer lower control arms and/or LCA Drop, longer brakelines, longer swaybar links, longer shocks, SYE (tc drop might work), and new axle gears (to turn the 35s).

Going that high will be expensive not matter how you do it. I'd say wait so you don't have to use spacers.

Problem is if you got Dana 30 and aw4, even if you can put on 35s with whatever lift and trimming, it's gonna be too hard for your tranny and axle. I know people who snap your stock axles. That's why there is Dana 44, 60, super 60.
