If the 33s are working for you why change?
The 35s will work your engine even harder. The 4:10 gearing should be just about right for the 33s. If you go to 35s you might think about 4:56 or 4:88 gearing.
Do you have a D35 or a different rear axle?

Good luck, L.M.

I was just going to ask if you still had the D35. Stay with 33's and avoid the risk from the added stress of the 35's.
