What upgrades do i need to go to 35's

i have a 2006 jeep wrangler rubicon unlimited. i am planning for the future and want to know what i need for 35 inch tires. currently i have 33's with a 3inch suspension. i will be getting some metal cloak fenders so the tires won't rub plus a 1 inch body. the gear ratios are stock for a rubi are 4.11. i think i will need to regear to 4.88. is that true. i know it will beneficial. what else i know brakes, brake lines, steering, and what else. a list of everything would be great. Thanks for all input.

i know that slip yoke eliminator is recommended for lifts that are 4 inch and up. would that really be a good idea or waste of money. and rubicons don't have slip yoke eliminator on them stock just a better transfer case right? thanks

Rubi's don't need a Slip Yoke Eliminator (SYE) as they don't have a Slip Yoke.

Yours should look similar to this:

yeah disregard the slip yoke question. rubicons have fixed flanges all you need to get is a longer double cardigan shaft.

This is the second time I saw you say "do your own search or reseach". You know what, I'm being nice now, just stop!

Only the second time? Break it down for him then bud. Give him the list that he's asking for. Give a man a fish and you will feed him for a day. Teach a man how to fish and you will feed him for a lifetime. Research is nothing new and this subject is no different.

This is going to give you more options than you want, but you will likely need to address the following on a rubi.
Ds length
Clearance via lift, fenders, trimming or a combo of all of the above.
Steering linkage will likely need to be addressed as well.
Re-gear - plan to go 5.13 if it's auto.
I'm sure there's other stuff but with tires You're probably in between 4-5k.
