Big Tires and New Gearing??

Hello everyone, I've got my 89' Wrangler on 33's with stock axles and other drive line stuff. I'd like to move up to 35's but I was told that I'd have to upgrade my gearing. (which I have no Idea how to do) Do any of you guys have any tips on what would need upgrading to ensure I can get the 35's and actually be able to move?

Well if you take it offroad, you may want to consider a new rear axle if you have the stock dana 35. It does not like big tires.. as for gears.. Avg. gears for 35's are 4.56's a lot will depend on engine tranny etc.. Also plan to upgrade the steering at some point, brakes as well.
