good rear gearing

I currently have 3.55 Open
I added the 31" tires. I am wanting to get back to the power I had before the tires what size gear should I go with would 4.10 be to much?

when you do the math, it comes to 3.75 gears.......that .02 gearing isn't going to be noticable...

31s and 4.10 are nice. It's also a factory combo.

I am satisfied with the power, especially compared to the 3.55 I had in there. The 3.55 sucked with anything bigger than P235 75R15
