Default Lift Help

Hey guys i have a 99 ram 1500 laramie regular bed 2wd. right now she is leveled with a 2.5 inch spacer up front and add a leafs out back. I now want to do an actual suspension lift. A few months back i ordered some doetsch spindles and needless to say after they told me to grind over an inch out of my lower control arm right next to my ball joint, they were sent back and i contacted fabtech. I am told there is no grinding for the fabtech system. I am having some issues deciding between a 3.5 or 6.5 system. right now i am running 285/75/16 with minor rubbing after cutting my whole inner fender out.
With having 4.56 gears i want to eventually go to 35s but these tires being brand new cannot justify getting new ones. so should i get the 3.5 inch kit then add the longer coils when i am ready for the 6.5 and 35, or should i just go ahead and do the 6.5 inch and roll on 33s for a bit. How ridiculous will it be? BTW this truck is a dd/chase truck is its intended build. thanks
