Default Re-gear to 35x12.50x15

No BS here, working in this shop with a full set of "like brand new" Km2's sittin around is really getting to me and im savin the money i make for tires+i could sell my all terrains now, they have hardly any miles on them, but first off, there is no way in the world i would ever even think about running that size tires on 3.73, im looking for somethin around 4.56 and idc if some people say 5.13 or whatever it is i do fine with 33 on my 3.73, but i was wondering where i could find these gears and stuff i dont know much about the whole gearing thing to be honest like what exactly fits, so any help would be appreciated...and, if i got a shop to regear it estimated cost would probably be around what?

dont know if i could do this but what if i somehow got the gears and then let the shop install them instead of making them buy them with that whole wait process and so on

I was quoted $800 per differential = $1600+tax from 4 Wheel Parts to have 4:56 gears installed in my truck.

4.56's will do fine with 35's but 4.88's will be ideal. Im pretty sure a 5.13 wont even fit in the 7.5 or 8.8 axle but i could be wrong.
