add the proper bumpstop extension and a 1" BL, and you won't have any problems.

I had 35s on with a 4"lift and was fine on the street but once I hit the trail I wasn't able to disconnect the front sway bar cause the tires hit the fenders.so now I have a 6" long arm lift and im loving it cause no rubber hitting metal.

Yep just add a 1 inch body lift to that 4 inch suspension lift and your jeep will be good to go for 35" tires. 4" by itself is not quite enough for that big of a tire.

Don't forget the fenders. If you change to high clearance fenders, you won't have any problems

You CAN, but its not exactly the best set up. You will have trouble at highway speeds and will lose 5th gear for the most part. Your crawl ratio also will not be very good. I am running 35s on 3.73 gears...but will be regearing next weekend...and I can notice it, but its TOLERABLE at best around town. I dont live anywhere big enough to test it at highway speeds.
