With your 4 banger and 33's, 4.88's is what you need to get closest to stock with a bit more ummph.

Thanks!

Any suggestions on retailers/websites to buy new gears from?

Thanks for the advice everyone.

maintenancerob76 You'll want to regear your axles with the larger tires on a 4 cylinder. Or you can kiss your power goodbye.

Newbie - Upgrades after Lift Kit

I'm installing a four inch suspension lift kit on my jeep this Saturday. I have already installed a new steering stabilizer. The site I purchased the lift kit from recommended the steering stabilizer (and it was only $30). I'm looking at getting new wheels(15") and tires(33").

I have a 2001 TJ 2.5L and was hoping to receive some advice on what other upgrades should be considered after installing the lift kit.
