4.10s should be perfect, 4.56 would kill on gas

My 32s with 4.10s on a auto tranny get great mileage. 33s would only be a little bit less. I'm getting around 20 with my 32s.

my truck came stock with 4.10's and 235-75-15's stock 3.0.

it was ok with 32's but was no good with 33's. its an automatic. i put 4.56's in and all is good now.

4.56s 33"s here. 4.0L auto. getting 17-18mpg.. and i do NOT baby it at all.
when off road it will drop alot since im doggin on it even more.

id go 4.56s so you have the power, and its less strain on the transmission
