If you want to lift more then 2.5" you want a lift kit that has new crossmember and lifted knucles. By going this route it keeps the CV axles at nearly the same angle they are at so you should not experience death wobble.
Another option with this type of kit is you can use Bilstien ride height adjustable shocks to make the truck sit closer to level.
4auto is different from AWD drive. If you have the 4auto T case then you will be fine lifting your truck
With 35" tires you will be fine. 37's are ok but are at the point that its a little to much tire to turn with stock gears usually.
You can tell what axle ratio by looking at the tag in your glovebox or I believe there is one on your axle as well
A good gear ration for 35's is 4:10, 37s would be good with 4:56
Although a gear swap isnt completly neccesary it is recomended
