looking to upgrade to bigger tires. 35" to be exact. should i use 4.56 gears or 4.88 gears. also i have a 3" suspension lift kit installed and all i need is 4" lift springs and larger shocks. is there any company that will sell me just those things. and do i need anything else to upgrade to 35" tires?

What rear diff do you have? A D35 won't hold up for very long with 35" tires.

What is your intended usage for the Jeep? 4" of lift will work for the street but not on the trail unless you bumpstop the heck out of it. Or you could sawzall the fenders.

How about longer anti-swaybar links?
Adjustable control arms?
SYE or t/case drop?

You have more things to consider here...

For 35 tyres youll need to put a body lift of at least 1" on and if you use 12.5 wide the brake lines and steering stops will need work
