Here's a place to get a lot of answers for your questions: http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/search.php
Seriously, though, there are a TON of posts asking about 35's, etc and you'll find many people that say 1)it get's pretty expensive, and b)would suggest you start out with 31's on about 3" of lift before heading on up to 35's. What do I wheel on, you ask? Why 235's of course
Here's a (not necessarily complete) list of things you'll need to get started:
-Lift kit of your choice, either mix'n'match or complete kit. Kit will likely include new front coil springs and rear leaf packs, some combo of new upper/lower control arms.
-Shocks (some kits are not sold with shocks)
-trackbar upgrades (new bar and/or mount)
-extended sway bar mounts (for front, most ditch the rear after installing new rear leaf spring packs)
-SYE (slip yoke eliminator) or your choice; either a Hack'n'tap or an actual kit, plus a new CV rear drive shaft
-new gearing (and while you're in there, may as well throw in a locker or two!
-Tires and wheels
