U can go 35" fine

I would first see what those spindles are capable of handling.

If you go 35's u may wanna consider regearing your axle to accommodate the larger tire

you definatley need to regear if you wanna drive it on the highway and stuff. you could pick up an axle at the junkyard, like a 8.8 out of a wrecked ranger and then add the gears yourself, use a guide and maybe ask some one to help out. that way you save a couple hundred bucks on labor. and maybe put that money into a limited slip

you can regear that axle, but that will take it out of commision for a day if done by a professional probably a little longer if its done at home. and its expensive to have a professional do that

ill try finding a how to, but its basically you need to insert shims to make the contact patch right on, its not hard per-say, but if you follow some good instructions youll be good. thats why if you do it on a seperate axle you can take your time double and triple check eeverything. youll need to take the axle out from under the truck anyway to do it.
