Help... Lift vs Lift cons

Ok jk jeepers...
I am new to this but i need your assistance in my lift choices. I have read the lift review threads, lift 101 threads and vendor positives for most of the top notch suspension lifts and i have narrowed it down to two. So now I need more specific info. Background first newbie jku rubi plan on 3.5 " lift will purchase tires in wheels at the same time. tires 35's wheels 16's. and flat fenders. DD 80% and trails and mud working my way up as experience and time allow.
1) On road quality for each Ive heard AEV has the Best on road manners how does RK compare?
2)fixed lower control arms vs adjustable pros cons? AEV has the fixed RK adjustable
3) more hassle free ? not a mechanic but trainable. I have heard heim joints have to be greased every 3k on the RK. Does AEV have the same requirements?
4) any other cons that you have
come across would be appreciated.

PS drive shaft and regearing are on the list but not an immediated consideration am I being naive on this issue?

sorry for the long post but the on the lift review 98% of the guys love there lift which of course means they had a well thought out plan but every lift from what ive read has some pitfalls. Thanks
