Re-gear

Have a 2.5l on 33s with 4.10s that I want to re gear. Should I go 4.88 or 4.56?

I would 100% go with 4.88 regardless, with the 2.5 youll want more torque. You mentioned it already has 4.10s , which means it was 5 speed. go with 4.88s man. My first jeep was a 4 cylinder on 33's ,it was gutless on the roads with 4.10s. If you go with 4.56 you will kick yourself in the butt!

Definitely 4.88 for 33's when you have the 2.5L and 5-speed. The commonly seen 4.56 recommendations for 33's are for the 4.0L engine.

I found this motive 4.88 master kit on eBay with timken bearings for $599, will this suffice?

It would but those parts would not be warrantied by the shop who installs them. It's best to have the installing shop provide ALL of the parts so they will warranty and handle everything if something goes wrong or fails after the installation. Installing shops will normally discount parts if you ask them to since most of their profit comes from the install labor cost. Yes those parts would include a warranty from the eBay seller (who would blame the installer who is normally the one at fault) but that would not cover the deinstall/reinstall labor if there was a problem since the shop would only blame the parts you provided.
