For 35's, I highly suggest going with a 4" kit. A leveling kit will not have much room for those 35's to move around and the rubbing would be very annoying after a while.

Well I have an 06 with 20's and stock the tires were pretty much 34". I just put a leveling kit on it with 295/65/20 which is a 35x12 and I have no rubbing.

I have an 03 f-250 with just a leveling kit. I'm running 35x12.50x20 tires on 20x10 wheels with a -19 offset and do not rub at all even at full turn lock. The shop that installed my leveling kit did trim the fenders a little bit but that's so I could even go off-roading with it and still not rub.

It depends on the condition of your factory leaf springs if your wanting to run an AAL or lift shackle. Still it would be close. For assurance we recommend a 4" lift kit.
