2006 Rubicon iso Guidance

Hello Community,

I am new to the four wheel world. Resolved and left the problems associated with fast cars where it belongs, in the past. Made a few lifestyle changes and now thanks to friends and coworkers am actively interested in my 2006 Rubicon (55k/mi & stock). I have hesitated joining up to this point because I wanted to have my jeep purchased beforehand. Thanks to many threads and informative posts I was able to discern the correct platform for my purpose. Typically my progress is slow and changes are meticulously considered. Here are my dream, vision, and goals.

Dream: Complete the Dusy Ershim Trail

Vision: 4" Long Arm Lift (LCG), SYE Kit & aftermarket front/rear drivelines, bump stops, and 35" tires on 15" by 8" wheels.

Utilizing the Rubicon package where possible (I feel) is important. Ergo: front/rear dana 44s with stock lockers and the 241 transfer case (and so on) were contributing factors to the decided year, make, and model of jeep.

With time I have my eyes on a crawl box, front/rear axle kit, tie rod/drag link kit, front/rear bumper, roof rack, fender, arb differentials, ect... But for my initial purposes these things (I think/unless I am wrong which is why I'm here)[to have my ideas questioned and amended] are all secondary.

Goal (starting point): Lift the stock 2006 Rubicon and install SYE kit & drivelines.

I'm planning on having a local 4x4 shop do the install, same place I'm buying my parts.

Am I missing something critical in my vision or goal to achieve my dream?
Will this be enough to attempt the Dusy Ershim?
Suggestions and comments are obviously appreciated, thanks community.

Sounds good to me but because this is the newbie check-in area, you may not get the answers you are looking for. You may want to check-in in this area too.
