Flat fenders, 4.25" backspace wheels, and adjustable rear control arms (push the rear axle back one inch). I can flex out well and with the smallest of pinch seem trimming no rub!!!

Definitely go with 35"s.

Here is stock with a 2.5 inch lift:



Here is my 2.5 lift with 34.5+ Nitto's. You should have more room, as your 2 door looks to sit higher than my 4 door.

I have the RC 2.5" and the 285 Duratracs and am very happy with my setup. I have the auto and 3.73s and the performance loss is minimal, mostly just downshifting on overpasses when running above 70. If you need the little extra height for your intended wheeling then go for it, but I was impressed with the differences of just moving up to the 33 (32.8).
