I cant tell if the jeep has been regeared or not, 4 cylinder, standard trans, 33s, 5th gear is useless, and cant get above 60 on the highway. Im guessing it prob hasn't or not enough if it has

and 4.88 is the best you can get for the dana 35, which would help a lot but your biggest draw back is the power of the 4cyl.

Would 4.88s allow me to do 70 again? And how would it affect the mileage?

With 33" tires, and regeared to 4.88, it should bring you real close to what you had with stock gearing and stock tires.

Yes you can. That is the set-up I have, but I sure don't care to run 70 in mine.
Just remember it is still going to be a 4 banger. The 4.88's just give you fuel mileage amd 5th hear back. Well......a lower crawl in 4-low too

Mine too but its a Jeep. 4:88s for a Jeep on 33s will put you back to normal but it is costly. Installed locally they want 1200-1500 plus anything else they find wrong.

My 4 cyl. regeared @ 4.88s with 33s is only 2.5 mph off...at least according to my gps. If I'm going 60 mph, actually shows about 57 or 58 mph. Yes, you can do 70 mph, but that is not my cup of tea in a lifted jeep...4.88 is ideal for 4 cyl. Wouldn't even consider the 4.56 option.
