Sure. Make sure to adjust your bump stops accordingly. Make sure you have enough funds in your budget to pay for a regear, upgraded steering, and upgraded brakes.

I would buy flat fenders to keep some of your uptravel.

Not many flat fenders offer more room for uptravel compared to stock fenders.

it also depends on whos 3.5 springs you run. REs3.5 springs give you over 4 inches of actual lift, where other brands might give you less. My RE 3.5 springs are 10 years old and the fronts have been carrying a full warn front end with bumper winch with 125' steel cable and they still are just over 4 inches tall.

You might want to check and see what your springs are actually sitting at. Factory springs sit at 12 inches tall so just subtract 12 from your current spring height and you get the lift in the front, i forget stock for the rear though lol.

I run 3" springs, 1.5" body lift, 35" MTRs.
You will need to add bumpstop, not sure what it equals on a stock axle but close to 2" probably.

I've got a 1.25" BL and somewhere around 3.5" suspension lift with 35s. My combo works well/ looks right. As noted, the lift is only the first step. Get your checkbook out.

3" springs, .75" front spacer, 1.25" BL, 35's, extended bumpstops.

Cutting:>>> MCE Flat fenders, relocated rear upper spring perches, trimmed rear flares, outboarded rear shocks.

Much more work to be done. Did somebody say checkbook?

This is my old setup that fits your question on lift exactly. Just the tiny-est bit of trimming just behind the rear wheels.

How big were your bump-stop extensions at the time?

2" Sus lift and 1.25" BL. I did have to trim the channel off in the rear wheel-well... Tube fenders may have helped. Not sure.
Definitely need to adjust bumpstops. And I chose to run extra long shocks so I need to outboard those eventually... havent gotten to it.
Oh and I put washers in the steering stops
