Ground Clearance or Down Travel?

I am looking into getting some rear shock relocation brackets and I'm having a hard time deciding which is more important in my case? I will be running 35s with flat fenders and will probably never go above 37s. Anyone have any insight into this?

with 35s, I would slightly favor ground clearance over down travel. Considering that most 35s are not really 35" and your axles will be even closer to the ground while aired-down, clearance would be more important with your rig.

Now with larger tires, you can have both.
