Question What All Do I Need To Lift? HELP!

To all,

I am on deployment and recently had my friend pick up a dime piece back home in ****ty Tucson, AZ. This 1999 XJ is almost too pretty to turn in to a hell raising pretty **** mobile. Anyways this is my first XJ and I have so many aspirations, and ideas for it but I am starting with the lift and tires. I have decided to go with the Rubicon Express 5.5" Long Arm full suspension kit... I know maybe overkill but hey what hell might as well go big or go home. I might downgrade to a 4.5" if I don't like the DD being a huge monster truck going down the highway.

Okay down to the dirty parts... Does anyone have the 5.5" RE long arm kit on their jeep with 35's? What do yall think of your height compared to the tire size? Did you cut and fold your fenders? Could you properly fit your 35's on your jeep with just the lift and nothing else? Or would I need to bump stop? Sorry for all the questions but I would like to know for sure since I am spending around 4K or so just to lift this beauty. Any help or pictures of your rigs would help a lot! Thanks!
