Hello I currently have an Isuzu I-350 Crew Cab 4x4 with a 2.5" leveling kit running 30" tires on 16" rims. I am about to get a 4" Tuff Country lift and 3" PA body lift to add on. Would 35's on 16" rims be a bad idea to do or what? I know I'd have to re-gear and stuff but what other issues would there be afterwards?

Might have to do some trimming, and / or get some wheel spacers, but it can be done.

Once you re-gear, truck should drive ok. The bigger tires will put more stress on your drivetrain. The CV axles and front drive shaft will be more prone to failure. Brakes will stop a little slower. Big tires could put more stress on the steering rack as well in some off road situations.

Won't the 4" tuff country lift eliminate the leveling kit thus only giving you 7" of lift?

The subframe lift kit gives 4" lift over stock. You can still crank the torsion bars (aka "leveling kit") above the stock adjustment. You might not get quite the 2.5" you had before, but close to it.
