New gearing and bogging down/LSD question

Hi guys,

Okay, I am new to this online posting stuff, I have always just tried to figure everything out on my own. I have now come to realize that is a very stupid idea, and there are plenty of jeep guys that are full of useful information. With that being said, I have a 97 tj 4.0 manual. It has 33"s lifted and some pretty heavy duty bumpers on it. When I am running through some mud, nothing too deep, the jeep is going but then obviously starts to bogg down. It will do it even in deeper puddles when it rains. I was wondering if this is because I have not re-greared since the taller tires. Would the stock gearing contribute to the problem? My next question was that I also wanted to install a limited slip diff. The jeep is not my daily driver but I don't want to get too crazy with it. Anyway, I was wondering if it would be okay if I just installed the LSD in the rear or would it be better to install it in the front,or at all for that matter. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
