Nice, thanks for the update. Do the 35s fit with the stock suspension or do you need a lift to for them?
You most definitely need a lift. 33s don't even fit with stock suspension.

@Colderweather86 is right.

Here's 35s on a 4" suspension lift. The rear axle moved backwards about an inch with this setup and is pretty well centered. If you just lifted it, without relocating the axle back a bit, I don't think 35s would fit well

She looks great! I'll no doubt want a lift anyway so that's not a huge deal. I'm hoping if/when they resume production they give they option for picking a gear ratio. If not I'll definitely have to this route

Did you use 2.5" springs?

Did you mount the rear spring shackle to the original hole, or have you drilled and welded in the sleeve?

Max speed with 34.25" diameter tires appears to be 76mph. I would not cruise this speed, and I could not push it faster. 55-60mph was plenty comfortable.
