Yes but all depends on wheel backspacing and bumpstops for tire clearance.

Also with your axles and gearing to push the tires. With 35's and bigger you need to regear and upgrade the factory 97rear D35 to a larger axle. Also with 35's and larger you should upgrade the steering and brakes.

I ran 35 with about 6 inches in the front and standard 4.5 in the back. Adjust your bump stops and you should be okay. You might want to go with 4.88's, I had 4.56's and it was good, but I think 4.88 would be better with the 5 spd. I also ran dual 60's.

I 2nd the 4.88's with your AX-15 transmission and 35/36'' tire. Exspecially wide as you are wanting. You will have 5th then.
