..and you don't need anywhere close to a 4" lift to run 33's OR 35's. You have lots of options under 3" that will work with 35's and yield far less risk and involvement. If you're wheeling is going to be moderate, go with a 2.5" BB.
Why 35's on 17's? Nothing wrong with that, but you have FAR more (and cheaper) options for any size tire on a 16" rim - even 18's, but 35's for 18's ain't cheap.
If your JK really does have a D35 in the back, then chances are you might have the 3.21 gears - if you're lucky, you might have 3.73s. The latter might be OK, but anything taller than a 3.73 is NOT good for either 33's or 35's. You'll want to kill yourself.
