Need some suggestions please!

i have a 2001 tj with a 4cyl 5-speed manual transmission with dana35 rear and dana30 front and i am about to get a lift to put 33's on it and i was wondering what gears i should go with and what brand is not to expensive. Also i am gonna get a throttle body spacer and was wondering what brand i should get for that too. Thanks for the help

Skip the throttle body spacer. It's not going to help you.

You want 4.88s. I've never shopped for gears for a Dana 35, so I can't help you there, other than to say that my driveline mechanic recommends Dana/Spicer and then Sierra Gear if you can't get the Spicers.

The throttle body spacer won't do anything except make your intake whistle loudly while you're accelerating.
