this will fit your 35's and it will make your rig completely compitent offroad. http://www.marlincrawler.com/htm/suspension/lift_kit.htm

also about the bumper, if i were you i would make a nice tube bumper on my own.

35s, hmmmm..... whats your view on fender trimming/firewall tubbing?

what kind of bumepr are you looking for? prerunner, big rig look, tube bumpers, etc?
