Size of tires...see 35's, but are these 12.50's?
Yes, 35's on stock wheels with 12.50 and Spidertrax Wheel Spacers that are required.
Do you have to cut the flares to avoid rubbing (if I install the correct length bumpstops?)...not sure if you know this or not...
You will need extended bump stops to run 35's and 2.5 - 3" of suspension lift to avoid rubbing on your fenders.(Depending on how much you articulate).
Rubbing sway bars can be prevented by buying aftermarket wheels with less then 4.5" Back Spacing or 1.5" Wheel Spacers on stock wheels.
Did you cut the bumper before or after the lift? If you did it after, did you have rubbing?
I cut the bumper as one of my very first mods before my suspension lift.
Are you running any spacers?
Only wheel spacers.
This is the reason why you run wheel spacers on aftermarket suspensions:
I have a 4Dr Rubi and plan on running ARB front bumper w/ winch and Treks rear...so I would expect my lift to be slightly less then yours (going to run HD springs I think). Sounds like you've done a ton of research - I have too, but see conflicting opinions...
'preciate any advice you could give me
HD Coils is the way to go, especially with bumpers and winch.
It's funny. When I took my Jeep to the offroad shop yesterday to inquire about drive shaft solutions, I parked next to a Jeep with 4.5" of lift, according to the service manager, and he thought I had a 6" suspension...
Here is my 3" Old Man EMU HD Long Travel Suspension next to a my old mans jeeps with a 4" Pro Comp Suspension Kit
Were both parked on the curb with one wheel/tire.
I would talk to David @ Northridge about any more technical questions because he's smart and full of knowledge.

Question... Is the driveshaft/automatic problem a problem on 4doors aswell?
Yes. It's also a problem with four door automatics and two door automatics.
