i ran a 2" BB and JKS 1.25" BL with 33" BFG MTs with no issues at all. when disco'd, you will make contact with the front fenders (if you don't extend the bumpstops beyond what the BB kit comes with), but connected, i never made contact.
i'll add some pics in a few.

Yup, had the same setup. I would suggest running some longer shocks and some longer front swaybar links. If you have vibes I would throw in a Motor mount lift and that will knock them out, since you will already have the BL. Well actually I would just go ahead and do it at the same time.

you'll be fine but i would suggest getting new shocks if you do any type of offroading at all. the stock shocks will be stretched to the max.

thats close to the setup I ran:
2" suspension lift and 1.25"BL(& 1"MML) mine mightve been a bit taller though depending on the "sag" of your stock springs.

if you diconnect your swaybar when you offroad, i suggest you extend your front bumpstops if you like your stock fenders ( hockeypuck "rtv'd" to where the bumpstop is supposed to make contact with the axle)

lol thats a big signature lol but yeah you should be clear.

basically you will rub 33s with even 5" of lift unless you get bumpstop extensions or a +3" BL (considering the shocks dont bottom out first).

i wouldn't put 35's on that stock 35. unless you have a really light foot. but even then its nice to at least upgrade to chromo shafts.

i think for now im gonna go with the 2 in budget lift from four wheel supply and a 1.25 bl from jks, with extended bumpstops and shocks to run 33's. i wanna keep it on a budget cause im in the military and dont have the big bucks to make it how i want it, but i need to do something cause i hate stock height and tires...i also picked up a brand new mile marker 12000 winch from my buddy for 300 so that was a steal, now i just need to do taxes so i can let my refund boost my tj....

military here too....

im running a 2'' bb and 1.25 jks bl. with the 1'' bmml ,, i suggest you go ahead and get jks's motor mount lift too. it's great with thier body lift and saves alot of steps / too include relocating the fan shroud which can be a pain in the butt I'm also waiting for taxes back to get new 33's
still running with the 31's.

relocating the fan shroud is absolute cake...and far easier (and less time consuming) than installing a MML. so "avoiding relocating the fan shroud" is definitely not a good excuse to do a MML
