You'll be miserable with a 6" short arm lift. When you go with that much lift on short arms you drastically increase the vertical load on the control arms. Also when the suspension is "flexed" you lose wheelbase which is a critical component to a stable rig when off-road. When you start creeping into the 6" range it's really best to start shopping for a long arm kit. A long arm suspension keeps your control arms at or close to the same angles as there were from the factory.
That being said you don't necessarily need a long arm kit to run 35's or 36's but you will need to adjust your bumpstops accordingly and possibly trim or alter you fenders for clearance.
How's the rest of your Jeep setup? Axles? Gears? 35's and 36's are a lot of meat for a stock drivetrain to handle.
Also, which Iroks are you looking at? Bias or radial? The bias Iroks measure 36.8 inches and my radial Iroks measure just a hair over 36 inches.
