Jeep build

I have a 2002 Jeep Wrangler X, 4 inch lift, and 33's. this is my first jeep and I've waited through two deployments to get it, I couldn't be happier with it! But I want to build it bigger, could someone walk me through some starting areas. I want to be running 35's and be sitting alot higher than I am now. Only issue is I'm working on this with my military pay check so it'll take time. I thought about starting with gears, any help?

Congrats! Folks might be able to help you more if you can tell us what you might be using it for? Light trail riding, rocks, mud, or mostly dd... Sometimes it makes a difference in what you'll want to do

DetroitRodeo, I'm a trail rider, even more now since the parks out here have motorized trails. But I do have to commute everyday from Las Vegas to Creech AFB, about a 30 minute ride running 75 the whole way, so fuel mileage is essential! I do want to have my jeep ready for 35's when I can lift higher than 4 inches, I want a taller and wider stance not only for the looks but for the trail clearance since its so rocky out here in the desert.

BUT as I was taking my wife to our baby doctor yesterday my check engine light came on. I plugged my pocket scanner in and it read out for TPS, P0121, so I stopped by Oreilly auto and grabbed a TPS. Started with the house brand, installed cleared the computer and drove 10 minutes and it was back on. So as I was aggregated I drove back took it out and put in there expensive 80 dollar one. Same thing happens, went back and sat there reading forums and saw people said it could be my Crank Position Sensor, changed that to, made it 15 minutes and its back on and I'm getting a random misfire now. Ran seafoam through my throttle body with little luck cleared misfire but when I started this morning it was multiple misfires, I shut jeep off, restarted it was gone back to one. Now at work ruining my scan its back to just TPS sensor bad. Long story but any thoughts?
