lift/tire questions

So I'm new to this whole thing but giving it a shot as i have stalked this site for quite some time. I'm looking at putting on new tires,a lift and front bumper on my 2012 (standard tranny). Currently i have my eye set on the Nitto trail grapplers. I plan on getting 17" xd series rims and lifting 2.5"(mainly a city commuter ). I've got several questions so I'll just list them and if you have an opinion or knowledge please leave some input.

Are 35" tires too big for a 2.5" lift if I want to add a new bumper on the front with winch at some point; as well as, a new rear bumper.

At what point do you need to worry about regearing? I live in Denver so not sure if altitude plays a factor or not.

Can a 3" lift be added without doing other major upgrades?

Would opting for 18" wheels be a better idea or should I stick with 17"?

What gives jeeps the look with the tires sticking out really far out on the side? No going for that look, so I want to be site to avoid that.

My Jeep is primarily for city commuting(my wifes) except for the weekends when we go up and do occasional four wheeling nothing too crazy, but enough that warrants a lift. I'm new to the whole jeep thing so to try not to be too harsh with all my dumb questions.

Thanks
