Given that you are staying with a close to stock tire size, and that you have a manual transmission, you can get away without regearing if you want. You will lose a bit of crawl ratio, and you may end up running a lower gear on the highway, but it's doable. My YJ with 3.07's and 33's might as well not have 5th gear, as it cannot pull it, so I drve it in 4th and it's fine. Now I am swapping 4.56's at some point to get some crawl ratio back, but it's not absolutely necessary.

The automatics seem to be much more necessary to regear, because they will hunt, not being smart enough to run full time in a lower gear.
