    Welcome. Sorry, there's not a not of traffic on this site yet. For 35's, you're probably going to need at least a 4" lift. You'll have to decide on short arm or long arm. The good thing is the extra length of the LJ usually causes less vibration issues.
    Posting in the Lift or Suspension section of this or other site will get more responses.

    Honestly, If you are trying to combine a street / trail rig but mostly street I would go with a nice 2-3in lift, and look into 33's with flat fenders (more articulation) .

    I'll assume you've done some of this before.

    OP, Rock Krawler kits are nice as well. Check them out here. The 3.5" X-Factor is particularly nice. Bilstein 5100s are a great shock for those kits. As far as lift height goes, anything over 3" is subject to driveshaft vibes. Depending on your budget, you may want to go with a 3.5" kit and some tube fenders to keep the LCOG thing. Better handling on the street with offroad performance. With a short arm kit, you could always do a 1-1.25" BL and MML with a tummy tuck later and gain even more break over clearance (nice with the longer wheel base).

    Remember, ground clearance (for drivetrain components) is a matter of the distance between the center line of the axle and the contact patch of the tire. More suspension lift does not equal ground clearance. More suspension lift makes room for larger tires. With that said, so do tube fenders. The later does not raise your center of gravity as much.

    Let me know if I can help you aquire any of this.

    Have a blessed and prosperous day!
