Unhappy finished lift and sittin still.

Okay, my 95 YJ was just lifted with a four-inch lift, and 33-inch tires on. My tiny four banger is now feeling like a one banger...I can just forget about going over 65mph,or shifting into 5th gear due to lack of power. So im guessing i need to gear up in my axle,(even though the bescheissen! mag said I wouldnt have to!) But I dont know what I need...How do I find; what I currently have?(stock),two;what size up im going to need?...and three; If I need to do the same to my front axle as well? Do I gotta measure something?The lift job was easy enough to do..but something tells me theres alot more I gotta do? so what is it?

Gears... well chances are you have 4.10 gears or there abouts. Both axle need to be geared the same.. or really close. like 4.10 and 4.09. With the 4 banger and 33's, either 4.56's or 4.88's seem to work well from what I have heard from most people. Doing a gear change is best left to a shop or a pal who knows what they are doing. Also if your going to pay to have the gears done you may also want to think about a locker. A good set of new gears will be around $500-600 with install kits etc, depending where you get them and the maker. Install from most shops should be around 200-300 per axle. Hope this helps a bit.
