    Well thats a loaded question. Welcome to the boards man!!!!!!! Alot of folks are running 35s with 3.73. then after that its pretty sparatic from 4.10 to 4.56. What is your intended 4x4 application, ie. mud, rocks, sand, daily driver, everyhting and then some? I am going to be running 3.73 with 35's. Now I would probably jump intothe middle of the ranges and say go for 4.10. It should give you enough room to grow in tire size. And will give you low end bump and mid range gas out of the three( 3.73-4.10-4.56)

    If your wheelin go with the 4.56 since you rpobably have a OD tranny. If it's a daily driver I would stay with the 4.10's

    Here we go again. Just do a search on these topics and you will see all posts you can stand. Some from the past few days. I am not typing all that again.
