Gears, install kits, and an installer.

What size tires are those? 4.56s might be too much

what he said^, 4.56s are normally a choice for when people get for a 35" tire. That picture looks a little smaller than a 35"

Maybe go 4.30 or as I did 4.10 I am supercharged 2wd with 305/30/26" tires they are 33.2" tall and I think I have the perfect combination for tire smokin or highway driving.

I run 4.88s with an almost stock tire size. Love it. It's like driving around with the overdrive off. I also had a TruTrac carrier installed at the same time the gears were changed.

That glare hurts my eyes through the computer screen...

4.10 may be more adequate for your non lifted truck.

31-32" tires stay 4.10 or 4.30. If you run 33-35 4.30 or 4.56 gears assuming you have a 5.4. If you have a 4.6 choose the 2nd gear number in both those tire sizes
