I would also suggest 33s. You have a lot of tire choices at 33 inch. A lot of guys here run the Duratrac line because it's a good mix of aggression off road and quiet tire with long life on the road.

Depends on what you're trying to do.

At bare minimum I would install a Ford 8.8 rear end with discs and re-gear to get the power back with 35s. You'll most likely need a slip yoke eliminator kit as well, depending on how much lift and how you're getting the height. I'm in the process of doing this right now myself.

While you're at it, now is a good time to update those shafts and do a spring over conversion if that fits with your end goals.

If you want 35's you will need about 6" of lift or go SOA. And like Denis has said, you will need to swap axles.
