just bought my first Tj!

Hello everyone,
i'm 17 and I actually just traded my cherokee for a 1998 Tj. Its got the inline six and five speed. It came with a four inch lift and 32s , but the guy I traded with also wanted to swap our tires. so it has 33s now. I love it and its only been a day. I just have one concern. Its still got stock gears. I'm pretty sure it has the Dana 30/44 with the 3.73s I think. I plan on regearing as soon as I can but that's a lot of money and I currently don't have a job because I play select baseball in the spring/summer. How much of a necessity is it to regear?
