2013 JK Sport

It's been a very busy month since i joined, but I finally have time to post some updates the new ride!

Would post pics but don't quite have time to figure out how to now.

In any case, it's a 2 door base sport model, 6MT with 3.21 gears, sitting on the stock 16's.

So far I've bought:
-RC 3.5' lift kit (kind of a temporary measure, looking into a LA system eventually)
-RC steering stab (single, going to exchange for a dual before the install)
-4x 35x12.5x17 Toyo open country M/T (for next summer)
-Yukon Zip lockers front and rear
-ARB heavy duty compressor+acc.

My plan now?

Install the lift, and order driveshafts to measure (either Adams or tom woods...input??)
I'd like to (meaning i won't be able to wait, and i WILL) have it re-geared to 4.88 before the winter (have the lockers installed at the same time), and I'm pretty dead-set on picking up some 35" studded duratracs to get me through the cold season.
I'd like to gusset the c's asap, and am very much leaning to the press-fit, no weld axle tubes (nitro).
Either buy or fabricate a tire carrier for the rear.

Input, particularly on the choice of driveshafts (tom woods/adams) would be more than appreciated

Also, is anybody running 35x12.5's on the 16''x7'' stock steelies?? I personally know someone who does it with BFG KO's, but would like to hear you opinions on it.

Thank you!

I'm sure there are many guys that are better versed on this subject than I am, but the rough country kits are definitely budget friendly. Lots of mixed reviews but most seem to agree the ride is harsh. I'm new to jeeps so I can't help out too much, but I could let you know how it rides once installed
