I live about 60 miles southeast of Tucson (about 4300 feet) and want to plant some citrus trees (lemon, lime, orange and grapefruit) what special requirements do I need to do?

Because of your elevation, you're likely to get cold winter weather that will damage citrus trees. While they may be safe in certain warm winters, eventually a dip down into the 20's will kill the trees. I'd vote for growing something other than citrus trees!
