Buying RE3.5in Lift..Advice?

After long debate..I am planning on buying a Rubicon Express 3.5inch standard suspension lift (RE7002) for my 06 TJ (will run 33")
Along with this kit, I plan on buying RE monotube shocks, a Cam bolt kit, and a front adj track bar.
My question is...Will that be all I need to drive this jeep on pavement..with some minor off-road..no flexing etc..I plan in the future to add lower control arms, steering stabilizer, and a SYE/driveshaft if necc.
Here is what the lift kit consists of:

Thank you for your input...

Do you have a manual or auto? If you have a manual, with the t-case drop kit your shifter will have a bind with the body in some gears. If an auto, should be ok, but you may still have driveshaft vibrations, so a SYE kit and CV driveshaft is recommended, if you do that, you'll need adjustable upper control arms, etc.... it's a vicious cycle. Once you start modifying, it's all downhill. If you have an unlimited, you can get away without a lot of the above mentioned items. Good luck.

it should come with a tcase drop kit which might cure some of the vibes but the sye and driveshaft recommended although many people don't ever get one even with a 4" lift
