What gears do the axles have?

I wouldnt worry so much the axle but the front spindle may be weak

7.5 axle--> dont push to much more than 33s no matter what gear
8.8 31 spline --> 33s maybe 35s if geared right
and the 8.8 with the higher spline count can handle 35s fairly well
and 9 inch and up your golden.

I think the 35's will fit, but you'll rub with even minor flexing. There are guys with double lifted Rangers (both suspension and body lifts) that manage to get 35's to rub.
