what brand gears do I get?

Ok, well the only thing keeping me from getting the gears in the truck right now, is well, i dont have any gears... Im lost at what brand to get... im going with 4.56.. my truck is a 4X4... HELP PLEASE!!!!!!


EDIT: well im just gunna give everyone an update right now with the whole build...

Ok, so the dad finally got the torsion bars unloaded and off..(he says thanks to everyone that helped with the info, saved us about 100bucks). we have a guy thats going put in the gears(buiilds stock cars for a living) hes charging me 150 per axle.. not too bad.. Dad said he is going to have the front end out this weekend, and he is going to take it to the guy with the gears( the guy lives about 30 miles from our house, so he doesnt want to drive the truck to him with the 35s). Once the guy has the gears in the front, dad is going to put the front end back in, drive the truck down to the guys shop and have him install the rear gears..



EDIT: Another question.. I decided im going to put a locker in the rear.. But im not sure whether to go with an old school lunch box style full time locker, or a on-demand locker like the elocker.. Any suggestions? Im not going to lock the front because of what everyone has said of the lockers tearing up our dana 35's..

THANKS FOR ALL THE HELP GUYS... THIS WOULDNT BE HAPPENING IF IT WERENT FOR YALL..
