35" Fedima is even higher than 35" Simex...Anyway without bodylift you will need to reshape inner arches. With bodylift there is chance to cut only fenders and put there some kind of extended wheel arches.

But for winch challenge vehicle i would choose route without bodylift....

I have 31" Insas (265/85/16) with a bearmach soft +2" lift & standard bump stops and i had to cut the arches and rear doors along the fold line at the top of the arch. The back still catches the top of the inner wing at the rear. 35" will mean either bodywork surgery or limiting the upwards flex with bump stops. A body lift would be easier but if its not road legal and for competition i would want to keep the body low and chop it.
