Motor, tire size, tranny, and mods, have a lot to do with gear ratio selection.

I would think it over man. Shane put in 4.88's in his, and even he thinks he should have done 4.56's. All depends on the kinds of driving you like to do and where you plan on taking the truck. Also what's done to it performance wise plays a factor in it. Just keep in mind the shorter the gear, the faster it gets up to speed, but the quicker it tops out leaving you at a freeway speed at about 2800-3000rpm.
I put 4.56's in my 2wd with the 2.5L 5spd after putting 33's on it. Pushed them just fine and I had no motor mods done.
Honestly, with what you plan to do motor wise and run 35's, go with 4.56. I'll be doing 4.56's in the near future.
