I would definitely do the tire carrier - or since you have a limo, even ratchet the spare in cargo. You do not want a 35 inch tire hanging on the stock carrier.

A good lift is spendy. The higher you go the more it costs because other things come into play. If the shop is telling you it is a "Rugged" (assume Rugged Ridge) lift and that cheap - just say no. Suspension is one place you will regret going cheap. At 4 inches you will need shocks, and should look at drive shafts. Also buy some insurance and truss or sleeve the front D30 when putting bigger tires. Maybe upgrade ball joints. It can add up very quickly. This is not a budget friendly hobby lol.

A much smaller lift/level and some 33s would also work. Technically you do not need a lift at all to run 33s.

Also before biting on 35s, what gearing do you have? If 3.21 it will not be fun. 3.73 will not be a joy ride but would at least be better.

And of course the obvious observation - if you do not plan to offroad you are spending a big chunk just for appearance rather than need - and every piece you put on comes with expense and potential pitfalls. If I planned to stay on pavement, I would go 33s and a level kit and call it a day. Much less headache and expense.

Dear Newbies: Yes you "can" do a 5.5 inch lift and 37 inch tires - just like you "can" stand in the middle of a golf course during a lightening storm. Just because you "can" doesn't mean it's a good idea however.....

Haha. No I didn't, and wouldn't have ever! Ugh!
Thank you, I would have been really mad to find out later that, 1, I can't read tire, and 2, I was sold 33" and not the requested 35"!

I put a 2 1/2" lift with 35's and found it is plenty enough. Had 32" stock rims so really lifted total of 4".

I'm glad it worked out for you. Only trimming I had to do was in skid plate and I just pulled it off complety.
