Default 01 blazer zr2 running 35s

I have a 2001 blazer zr2 mostly stock running the stock size 31 inch tires .. I'm planning a build up this summer and was planning on going with 3 inch lift shackles and 1.5 inch tbar crank along with a 2 or 3 inch body lift would I fit 35s or should I just stick with 33s .. I don't mind trimming fenders and I'm hoping to build a bumper .. just looking for opinions .. not looking to be told about parts wearing out or weak front ends .. I already know .. not gunna be doing major offroading.. mostly gunna be a winter beater and mild trail/back roads

Plan on the 33's. To fit 35's you'll need at least a 6" lift and even then you may need some trimming.

Ok thanks .. Still debating on a SAS with xj Cherokee axles seems pretty straight forward and I can weld so that's a option

You also want to be careful with the T bar crank. I had a full size Ram that I did that too and it absolutely ruined the handling. Probably fine for off road only build but I don’t recommend it; totally changes your front end geometry
