ACOS, 2.5" SL & 1.25" BL...what bumpstops?

I currently have the 2.5" SL and 1.25" BBL and am looking at purchasing a set of ACOS so that I can fit 35" tires.

I've read that for 35" tires, you need 5" of lift, this would give me 5.5" at a minimum.

How much bumpstop would I need to keep my tires from reshaping my front fenders? I keep my sway bar attached in back, so I'm not as concerned about stuffing the the rear wheel wells (should I be?).

Eventually (years away) I'd like to do the Metalcloak overline fenders, but it's not in the budget picture at the moment.
