What gears??

4.88's or 5.13's? 37" tires, 9" axle rear, dana 44 front. Auto tranny for now. 4.0L engine. Will probably be going to manual tranny sometime around fall/winter. Most of my driving is in town or in the snow. I won't go over 55-60 more than once every couple or few weeks. I know I would go 4.88 forsure if I was staying with 35's but i'm going to 37's soon and i'll do tires and gears at the same time.
thanks
