Lift and bigger tires

I recently got a 2012 Jeep Wrangler Sport I have been looking at Jeep's and reading about them. I want to get my lift installed by an actual mechanic I want a suspension lift. Do I just need to get the lift put on or do I need to make other changes? It is an automatic. I want 35 inch tires.

I am relatively new (June) to this but you have a ton of reading to do. There are so many issues with lifting that it is almost impossible to give a one size fits all answer. There is hours of reading and then hours more after that. This site is full of information and you should slide over to the J/K site here for lots of info.
It may seem simple but depending on how you are using the jeep and what you are adding as well as a hundred other variables will all add to clouding your answers.
There are so many combos to get the 35's under but that is dependent on all kinds of variables.
I have a 13 J/K sport 2 dr and it lifts differently than a 4 door and on and on.
Its not impossible but its not simple. Just spend lots of time researching and actually talking to people with YOUR type of Jeep and what they have done with theirs. Good Luck.
