Getting smaller tires is cheaper though -- but what is it you want overall?
Although, 4.56 gears are sort of okay overall, I would recomend more gear.
For my Ranger, I feel as though I should have gone with 4.88 gears instead. Yes, it will rev a bit more on the highway, but I feel that it will put the 3.0L in a better powerband therefore making it easier to go up hills.
I can tell you that going up any hill with a 3.0L and 33's is just plain brutal and disappointing which is why I recommend 4.88 gears. Just keep in mind that it will rev a bit higher.
