Default would it be bad to go bigger?

I have the amc 20 and the dana 30, with 4.10 gears, solid axles, lockers, and 33" tires. Would it be bad to go with bigger tires, like say, 35"s?

I know the 4.10s are supposed to be good for 33"s, but would it be much different with 35"s?

thanks.

Plenty have run more tire with less gears..

Your Jeep, you have the 258, a T176, Dana 300... should be decent for tooling around MI.. thats about a 40:1 crawl..

I ran my CJ-5 with 35s, a 304, T-15 3 speed, Dana 20, and 3.73 gears.. thats a 20:1 crawl..

Was perfect for mud/snow/etc.. Slow crawling coudl have used more, obviously, but was perfect for stuff like the mounds. I went through the level 5/pink trails in attica with that setup(well, 34s then) and survived and did well..
