Rubicon, 35s by 14.5 .....thoughts?

Hello! so, after much feedback on an older thread, i am going with the preformace accessories 4 inch lift. this is what was said about it in JP magazines "10 ways to fit 35s on your jk" article.

"The Performance Accessories 4-inch lift is a combo of body and suspension lift. It includes reinforced nylon body blocks, front spring spacers to level your Jeep, a CNC- machined steering extension, and urethane Gap Guards to cover the gap between the body and frame. You will easily be able to fit 35-inch tires with this simple-to-install kit. It's so far under $300, you can even have it shipped to your door and still not break three bills."

now, i hear big tires can mess with axels and such, but apparently, the rubicon can handle up to 40by12 with stock guts underneath. (ive herd 35's max for normal jks) however, i am looking at a pair of pitbull growlers that are 14.50 wide....thats a lot of tire...
also, am i overlooking any other major issues. (i am creating flat style fenders btw)

any input appreciated!

Axle C gussets, truss or sleeve, ball joints. For the rear, chromo axles.

Recommended for even a 37" tire
