Further driveline mods for 3.5" lift?

I'm still waiting on my new JK Rubicon 2-dr, but I'm very interested in the 3.5" Rubicon Express lift kit as a welcome home present. I was wondering if there were any futher driveline modifications that are required when lifting these jk rubicons 3.5"??? Thanks guys. I want to run a 33" tire on the 3.5" lift kit with the only other potential upgrade being gearing.

Driveshafts. You can do a Teraflex 2.5" and clear 33's no prob and won't have to change driveshafts.

Lifts of under 4" won't "require" driveshafts. 4" they're recommended by many kit manufacturers. 5"+ they're pretty much required.
At 3.5", I'll tell you what I'm doing (I'm going Rock Krawler, but same idea)- front track bar, rear TB eventually, front lower control arms (to correct caster), rear upper control arms (to correct pinion angle), and that's about it. Keep it simple, and save $ for when stuff breaks Mark W.
