Have a mod question, need some help

Ok, I have been reading some post on here about upgrading tire size and axles. I have a 95 YJ and I recently put a 4"RC lift on it with 33" tires. My question is, can I leave the stock axles and gears the way it is (stock)? I don't have the money to upgrade right now. This will be my daily driver and occasional trail riding, nothing hardcore. Will leaving the axles and gears stock screw anything up? Thanks for the help.

I,ve been running stock axles and gears for years without any problems. I have 33" swampers and 3.73 gears.

It's all in throttle management and if course no crazy spinning the tires anywhere. Treat it right it will last. I was amazed at what I did and where I could go driving it politely. Ran with a bunch of new Rubis no lockers and had no issues rocks sustain loose shake climbs no issues.
