If you are having things installed, then no way are you going to get out less than a few thousand. But there are so many other things you should do in order to make the jeep handle the lift and tires. i.e. Sye, stronger axles, re-gearing. You will find that it can get pretty costly to do it right. I suggest do some searching on this site about fitting 35's before you start anything.

I'd say doing 35's and 6" correctly, you'll have to spend no less than $4-5K. That's allowing about $1000 for lift/sye/etc, $1500 ish for wheels/tires, and $1500 ish for gearing. This is provided only if you already have a rear Dana44.
