Help me with my list!

ok so I already have the 4" lift with 33's.. which is nice, but extremely common. So next time I have to buy a set of tires im thinking I want to bump it up to 35's.

I just don't exactly know what all I will need or want to accomplish this..

on my list for this already are:
-SYE
-2" spacer lift
-new shocks
-both adjustable trac bars
-re-gearing

If there is anything else I would definately need please let me know.

I have no idea what brands I plan to get with any of these items because It's still just a thought, but after the spacer lift I will have 6" and I'm not sure what shocks I should get to cover that kind of distance. And I'm not sure what gear ratio I should go with either.

any input is extremely appreciated,
thanks

which rear axle do you have? if you wheel alot a Dana 35 isnt going to do well with 35's on it.

I have the 44.. Is the stock 44 strong enough to wheel with 35's, or would you suggest beefing it up?

44 should be fine with 35's. Bigger brakes. What are your current gears?

along with the SYE you need a CV driveshaft. Thats the point of putting the SYE in.

I think the stripper pole would be a great addition, I just cant afford it at the moment lol.

and i left the driveshaft off the list because I would have to get one with the SYE, thanks though.

and current gears are stock, I don't remember what those are at the moment, but I already want to down gear because of the 33's, so getting the 35's would be an excellent excuse to spend the money lol.

and this may be a stupid question, but the more i think about it the more it makes sense.. so i'll ask it anyway.

obviously 35's are going to hurt my gas mileage.. but would re-gearing help balance it out? since the engine won't have to work as hard to get them spinning?

I would add a 1" body lift and longer bump stops for the 35's. Adding coil spacers on top of the springs could cause some issues with the control arms being maxed out.

I thought about the BL also.. but I thought there were quite a few people on here that did the spacers on top of their suspension lift, I don't know what I'm going to do yet lol.

but I thought i remembered something from another thread, if I have more then 4 inches of lift will I also have to get longer break lines?
