Problem with a F250 is the D50..to fit 35" you need to go up about 4" and that requires a different steering system Superlift's Super runner $$$.
Best option is get a D60 and a RS kit with SD springs..best riding lift you can get with stock components.

i found an add-a-leaf kit for 109$ or a 4 inch lift for 610$. If i get a 4 inch lift and thirty fives do i need to re-gear my truck?

They must exist because mine sits level to slightly high up front. Looking at the components up front I think it has different springs in it, but I am not sure. It was that way when I bought it and the dealer I got it from had no idea on the previous history.

what about getting two firestone overload airbags for the rear making your own brackets and put them up front could ride quite nice and add the height you need, I have been thinking about doing that to my truck to get another inch up front and take out a leaf or two from the superlift spring pack up front and use the airbags to get back what is lost and them some then the spring would keep the axle in place while most of the weight would be on the bags, just an idea im throwing out there
