double lift questions

Ok, I have a body lift already on my truck, and 33 inch tires. Basically I want to put 35s on it. So I figured id do shackles and torsion bar key to clear the tires. But if I put 35s on, is that bad with stock gearing and what not? Any issues I may be running into? Any reccomendations would be awesome! Thanks!

Yes you will want to regear. What gears do you have now?

Look on your axle tag or the door tag.
