Gearing change

I've got a new jeep, came with all four spider gears in the d35 shot. Need to regear, it's a 2002 4.0 5spd nv3550, what gears do I currently have, and which ones should I get. I'll never have bigger tires than 33's and it currently has 32x11.5 on it. Any help is appreciated.

You'll need to buy new spider and side gears as well, when you regear you typically reuse them, but since they're bad....
You probably have 3.07s, but 4.56s is what's recommended for 33s with the 4l 5sp. You'll have to do the front too or forgo using 4wd at all until you do
