Need help with my 2013 10th anniversary rubicon

I've been doing a lot of research over the last couple of days and I have an idea of what I want. I have some questions... Also would like some feed back.

I want the Rugged Ridge Aluminum Wheel, Black Satin, 17 inch X 9 inches, 4.75 in backspace

http://www.ruggedridge.com/wheels-ti...t-pattern.html

I want to run 35in tires. The tires I want are the Nitto Trail Grappler... This is where I get confused. Do I run the LT315/70R17 D121/118Q or 35x12.50R17LT E121Q ?

http://www.nittotire.com/Tire/trailgrappler#size

Finally I'm going to need to lift. I see the AEV 2.5" is very popular. I'm also confused here. Do I get the kit with no shocks and run the shocks I have now or do I buy the kit with the Bilstein shocks?

Please let me know what you all think. I have done research but I'am confused on those questions?

I would like for everything to run smooth and no rubbing. Another note is that I live in a building and have to park in a parking garage. Need to keep the jeep below 7ft.

Thanks to everyone who replies to this post.

AEV kit comes with the tuned bilstein shocks. Quick note... for the 2012+ i advise you into getting exhaust spacers if you plan on flexing your jeep. it will save your driveshaft.

with the nitto trail grapplers...they offer 315/70 and 35x12.5 wich is almost equivelant in size. (not a lot of manufacturers do that...its either 35x12.5/17 or 315/70/17...but not both)

If you plan on playing hard...go with the E rated. i'm not sure of the weight difference on them but you can do ur research. should be a significant increase in weight from D to E (8ply vs 10ply)

you'll be fine in the garage i believe. i had 285/70/17 w/ no lift and can fit under 6'3. i added a 2.5 but havent tried. u do the math.

RRico, I went with the 121Q's from Amazon here: Nitto Trail Grappler M/T All-Terrain Tire - 35/1250R17 121Q : Amazon.com : Automotive

check out pics of my 10A with the Rugged Ridge and 35" Nittos to see what you think:

Hey J33P4M3, I actually came across your thread a bunch of times during my searching. Your jeep looks badass!! You did it right my friend. It was between rugged ridge And XDs... But after seeing your jeep and a few others I decided the RRs.

I see some people use bilstein 5100. I was looking at the AEV 2.5" DualSport XT Suspension System with Bilstein Shocks and it doesnt say what it comes with. Is there a difference between the Bilstein shocks it comes with and the 5100?

Also what is the difference between the the kit with LHD and RHD?
AEV 2.5" DualSport XT Suspension System with Bilstein Shocks for 07-13 Jeep® Wrangler Unlimited JK 4 Door with LHD - Quadratec
AEV 2.5" DualSport XT Suspension System with Bilstein Shocks for 07-13 Jeep® Wrangler Unlimited JK 4 Door with RHD - Quadratec

Are these the Exhaust Spacers that you speak of ?

From my research, yes, that's all you need. And those are the correct spacers.
