Still some variables there, like spooled, locker, ARB, How fresh and what kind of power are we looking at?

But assuming a stock 8V, and basic dirt road, mild trails, some occasional mud holes and a lot street use, then run the stock ones till they break. probably get a few years out of them. If it were me though, I would step up the axles anyway and move my week point to a drive shaft or U-joint which is a lot easier to repair on a trail.

If 35's are the tallest then 5.13 or 5.38 gearing. If open then stock is ok. If locked or open and you don't won't to worry chromoly and Longfield or CTM u joints. If locked and don't won't to worry RCV shafts.
