its strongly suggested to have 5" or more for 35's...also, you need a lot more than just a lift for 35's (gears, axles, control arms, etc)

not many 4" lifts with 35's here

4" lift is recommended for 33's

You can run 35's with a 4" no prob. Just need correct bump stop length. I'm on 3" springs with a 1" body lift. Lots of guys running the same combo out there.

Of course you can run 35's on that size lift but is it ideal? No. The only way you won't rub is if you bumpstop the crap out of it and then what's the point? If you really wanted to you could run 33s on a stock TJ and bumpstop it a butt load and you will only have to worry about rubbing when turning. Hopefully you never plan on turning.
To the OP, read this. It will probably answer a lot of your questions.

i never said you couldnt run that combo, just not a good option and isnt ideal (as elite mentioned)

there are far too many variables to make some of these blanket statements

You never mentioned trimming anything or different fenders so my statement is assuming you're running stock fenders and not trimming the body.

I'll be putting some high-line fenders on my jeep soon, I have had my tire bend one of my fenders from insufficient bump stop/clearance.
It's a pretty good set up though if you plan to get flat fenders and the correct gears and axle modifications.

Slight rub in the rear on the stock flares. Too lazy to trim up the tub. Eventually plan on hi lines and 37's, once funds allow. Running a rokmen TT with 18" of clearance under the belly. I'm running Currie steering, arms and antirock with big spline axles and arbs in both the D30 and D44. Seems to work pretty well on most of the trails around here. I've got about 4" of up travel. I do have my rear shocks outboarded also.

only if yours is damaged.

the things you will need at 4" is a SYE, DC driveshaft, and rear adj control arms, uppers and lowers, if the kit you choose doesnt come with them

35's can clear just fine with 4" and a 1" BL........Ive seen a bit less too.

Honestly though, with a 4" lift, with stock fenders and whats typically available with shocks etc, you are going to kind to need to bumpstop heavily anyway regardless if you want to keep close to 50/50 up/down travel.

Typical shocks for these lifts are in the 9-11" range. If you toss on 4" springs and bumpstop 2-3" that's still going to give you roughly 50/50 up/down travel. Most shocks and springs in this range regardless normally require significant amounts of bump stopping.......especially in the rear.
