    Melitone, it depends on what kind of wheeling you do and whether or not you have a locker in it. If you do not put a locker in it, it shouldn't be a problem. The problem with Dana 35s arises when a locker is installed and then wheeled in high traction conditions such as rock crawling. If you don't do that, the 33 inch tires will be fine. Also most of them that break are in situations where there is no traction and then a tire grabs with the engine revved in low range. Avoid those types of situations and you won't have a problem with it. I rock crawl with mine and it has a locker and 31s on it. See my avatar for a pic of that,

    Well i use my jeep to get around the city and 2 times a month to the desert to climb hills.
    another day pass by rivers and nothing else. stones up can not be here in Peru because there is no where. Well then as you say there are no problems with my Dana 30 and 35, provided they do not have lockerz.
    What is the perfect height to have 33 wheels 33 rims with 2.5 xq will scrape the fender. what about the death wobble? No I have to make changes? Here in Peru tell me to make some modifications when the breakeven lift, gravity make changes and that produces the death wobble.
    But here there are no trucks raised to 4.5 as maixmo 3 inches. there is only Toyotas, Fords, Nissans and dodges and is raised with a larger danna. Wonder why this forum because I xj if I see here is people have their well-armed jeeps and I really like. here should have enough experience
    I hope I help and do the work here in Peru and then share
    regards

    If you are going to run a 3" lift with no trimming of fenders, then 31" diameter tires are a very good combination. They can rub very slightly at the rear part of the rear fender flares when fully stuffed. I did not find that to be a problem and ran them for several years that way. My opinion is that a 10.50X31X15" tire on stock wheels is a very good combination. They will however rub on the lower suspension link when turning very sharply. I did not find this a problem. I just backed off a little on the steering wheel when this happened. The stock wheels will allow you to not have to make adjustments in your bump stops. It is the best lift/tire combination for the money.

    I'm not sure 4.5" would be enough for 33", I know it fit 31.
    I wouldn't go with 33 & D35.

    With 33" tires, it all depends on whether or not you trim the fenders or not.

    Without a fender trim you have the ideal tire/lift combo. Also without a locker and mostly street driving the D35 will be OK. Just avoid rock crawling with that combination.

    Some days it is just not worth it to gnaw through the leather restraints.

    I think youll be fine with the 4.5inch lift. I have a 4.5 on my jeep and its fine with the D30 and D35. BTW is your jeep a diesel. The snorkel is on the opposite side compared to what we normally see here in the states.
