XJs are unibody there is no real frame in them you can't body lift them

You will have some clearance issues in the rear on the inner fender well and on the front on the lower control arms possibly the sway bar mounts if you run the stock wheels due to the large amount of backspacing on the wheels.

3 inch lift with 33's ...!! you will end up with 1/2 inch of suspension travel ...it will look OK ..but pretty much be useless offroad.....I have 5 inch lift with the same tires and just cut over 2 inchs of metal off ...plus extending my bumper out 1.5 inchs...

Also a dana 35 and 33x12.50 isn't a smart idea.

so what would the recommendation be. this is my 1st 4x4 build, and I'm limited in my finances. Should I just stick with the 31" x 11.5 x 15's that i have right now?

There's a big group down in the states, dunno what they call it, but they race XJ's off road, lots of stuff available for them, high clearance front fenders and stuff. You can search and find lots of stuff without just doing more suspension lift. Don't worry, you can have fun with 31" tires too.
