I have 321 gears if I put 35's on it will it lose a lot of power it's a everyday driver

Auto or manual? Either way id say absolutely yes you will lose power with 35's. I just put 33's on mine with 3.21 gears and it was barely noticable, not bad at all. 35's would be much more I would imagine.

If you were going to go with 35s you would need to make sure you buy a lightweight wheel and tire combo. I have Nitto Trail Grapplers and they are very heavy. I have an auto and 3:73 and it's fine but I would go there if I had 3:21.

What about 33" trail grapplers with 3.21. Would I be okay running this setup?

I run 33" BFG AT's at the moment and had Cooper STT's in 33" before that on my '12 2dr with 3.21's. I found a big power loss over the stock 29" tires but I got used to it. I imagine 35" tires with 3.21's would be bad.
