Default Jeep d35 rear stock gears?

I'm new to this, I own a 96 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. I want to put a lift in it and put some 33" mud tires on it, I'm guessing a 4" lift will work considering I already have 30" tires on it. From what I have read to maintain my fuel economy I will also have to change my front and rear ring and pinion. So my question is... How do I figure out what gears I already have in the front and rear? I looked in the door panel and the stock tires are supposed to be 215/75R15. I found a code on the rear axle that said 5251, but thats all I could find... So any info on how to figure this out would be nice.

In 1996, the 4.0L I-6 used 3.55 gearing in the axles, 3.73 for the towing package. To identify yours has the towing package, look behind the passenger side grille. If you see a mini radiator type item there, you have the towing group with 3.73 axle gears. Your Jeep will be equipped with a low pinion Dana 30 front and a Dana 35c rear.

If you have the 5.2 V-8, the axle gearing is 3.73. This would be equipped with a low pinion Dana 30 front and a Dana 44a rear.

I tried google but I guess I didn't type in what I should have, I have the I6 and I don't believe I have the towing package so it must be the 3.55 gears. Thanks.

You'll need more than that to fit 33" tires. I have about 8" on my 96 and run 33" tires with no rubbing at full flex.

If you're willing to trim then you might be able to get away with it.
