Gear Ratios & Chips

I've finally finished the apperance of the truck and now I'm wandering what should I start off w/ 1st under the hood? Since I got a 2.3L would it be best to start w/ a chip then new gear ratio?

Do the gear ratio and then the chip. Your speedo will be off once you switch gears so the chip can compensate for that.
