I totally disagree. I'm running 4.56 on 3.0. If you have an automatic in particular 4.56 is great. I haven't done it with a manual though.
4.56 gears with 35's ends up giving you about the equivalent of a 3.93 or so ratio -- better than the stock 3.73 most 3.0's come with. You can turn 35's just fine with 4.56's and not take as much of a hit in day-to-day use.
But again: manual transmissions are a whole 'nother deal. Still, the final gearing isn't that different so you're still talking about turning a lot of revs on the highway if you go numerically higher than 4.56.
