    i'm joining a hunt club that is about 2 hours from the house. i need to know what gears would give me better performance.
    i have a 350..th350..np203(p/t kit)..corp 10 and corp 12 with 35"tires. the blazer will see more on-road use v/s off-road. also the maximum speed on the roads i will be travleling are between 45-65 mph. i still want low end power just for the "i know it's there" purpose.
    any advice will be appreciated.

    I have 4.56s with 35inch swampers and can run 65mph with out any problems. I drive it about 50 miles every day on the interstate to and from work .Might go faster if i had a fifth gear to get the rpms down.
