New JK owner has lift questions

I just ordered a 14 Rubicon Unlimited. I want to run 35's and am planning on wheeling this jeep the back way to Crown King and around Table Mesa, if you are not familiar with Arizona these are decent rocky trails. I have been researching 3.5 inch lifts from Rock Krawler, Metalcloak, and AEV. While on the Metalcloak site I saw their fenders and i just started thinking should I just run flat fenders and get my lift from the 35's. Then I don't need to screw around with the front drive shaft and the exhaust modification.

Just need some thoughts on this. I know I'll get more ground clearance from the lift but does my thought process make sense?

Thanks

I would recommend the Rk if your even thinking about Table Mesa trails and a 3.5" lift. I would also recommend 37's if you want to have a good time. All the other trails you mention 35's and any 2.5 lift will work more than fine.

On any of the 3.5" lifts you will need exhaust spacers or a aftermarket drive shaft

Absolutely Jason. Table Mesa has a lot of rock jumbles so getting the belly off the ground is more critical than it would be in say Moab where slick rock is 90% of the trails.
