FWIW: I broke less with my 36" TSL bias ply tires on IFS.
However, I was pretty much guaranteed a new steering rack once a year (junk yard racks, about $100).
The $100 a year was well worth the additional ground clearance, and traction. IMO, you will break LESS on 35's because you will not get as much wheel spin to get over any given obstacle.
However, learn the truck, and you'll really need to pay attention to how the wheels are turned, and you'll have to learn when it's ok to spin, and when it's not ok to spin. I wheeled my IFS hard for 5 years and it took some time, but when I went to the dual case setup, and 36" tires it paid off. I broke 13 CV's in one year on 33's, and 2 CV's in 2 years on 36's. It definitely was not because I was being easier on the truck either.
Also, on the 35's note. I had tubbed my truck to clear the 36" TSL's without any rubbing throughout any range of travel/steering. However, for a little while it was really hard to find the TSL's and I ended up with a set of 315/75/16 Kevlar MTR's. The 315/75/16 (35x12.5) kevlars rubbed my bumper, fenders, frame, UCA (even with a 1.5" wheel spacer) and everything else. Plus they were shorter than the Q78 (36x11) TSL by almost 2".
