I just did exactly what you are doing.
All I needed was a paystub and the Sales agreement after I completed the online application.
The paystub was easy but I needed to wait until a VIN was assigned to the vehicle before submitting the sales agreement. Sounds like you already have a VIN.

This is my personal opinion from personal experience. Call DCU for confirmation.
A score of 710 and income of $35,000 with no other debts would likely get you approved with the lowest interest rate.
The amount you'll qualify for a loan on would be based on your debt to income ratio; the rate you'll pay will be based on your credit score.
I'd recommend first looking to build up your credit score a bit higher if you can. We'd want to get your score closer towards a 700 number.
Do you have any credit cards / loans? Perhaps a store credit card such as Target or the Gap?
