I'll be doing some trail riding, but nothing too aggressive, but I'll look into those too.

Nice! Yeah, I guess I should do a 33" tire pretty much perfectly, and then upgrade to the 35" smoothly later on, than do an okay job with 35" tires, and end up costing more money down the road to...

And I gotta wonder, can I just beef up the tailgate somehow? I've got about $380 lined up for a new rear bumper and spare tire mount, because the stock gate can't handle a 35" tire. So rather than...

I think they can do the gears, but I gotta ask them first. Will I lose anything by doing a 3" instead of a 4"? Turns out the 3" is in fact cheaper. Also, how do you like the lift?
