Stock Gear ratio ????

First off...Ive been lurking around here for a while and it seems like a great place!

I have a 95 YJ with the 2.5 and a 5 speed manual.
I just ordered the Rough Country 4" lift and a set of BF all terrain 33x 12.5(as well as another couple grand of goodies).I have no clue what my stock gear ratio is and therefore dont know if Im going to have problems with this setup(on the highway and all that good stuff). Im sure this has been covered several thousand times but Ive used the search function and have been unable to find what Im looking for. Any help would be much appreciated!

What gears do I have in my Jeep?
I4 Automatic - 3.73:1
I4 Standard - 4.10:1
I6 Automatic - 3.54:1 (normally)
I6 Standard - 3.07:1, 3.54:1 or 3.73:1 - must verify with the tag on the axle or by pulling the differential cover and reading the numbers stamped in the ring gear or by counting revolutions of wheel versus driveshaft.

This is from the FAQ section. Many people run those gears (4.10:1) with 33" tires, although highway will not be the best.

4.10s with 33's is bearable. its fine in town and on the trail, but on the highway it sucks, esspecially if its windy.
