Newbie with a Lift & tire question.

I will be purchasing a 2011 JK 2-Dr 6-spd with 3.73 gears. My question is I want bigger tires and a lift. What I'm thinking about is a 2.5" Lift with 33" - 35" tires. Do I need to do anything to the gear box? Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!

Do I need to be concerend with this configuration?

Most 6-speeds have 3.21 to start with so if you have the upgraded 3.73 w/manual, you can get 33's and should still be fine. If you go to 35's you will probably will need to regear.
