Gearing? Lift?

Hi guys,
I'm new to the forum and keep seeing posts about gearing and lift and I don't know how to determine either? (Well, I read a post *just now* that included a photo, so I'll slither back under my Jeep tomorrow to try to find the tag for gearing.)
I don't particularly want to change anything at present, but I want to know everything about my Jeep. I bought it used.
Advice? Links?
Thanks in advance...

You don't change the gears. You (may) change gears to compensate for bigger tires. Bigger tires usually are done with a lift.

Ok. I *thought* that was what I was reading but wasn't sure. This Jeep has some modifications (mostly from the previous owner(s)) and I'm not planning on getting bigger tires. (At least not yet, anyway.)

Year and engine size would help.
