First of all, that title doesn't sound so good, lol....

4.10's would work, that would actually get your speedo and everything back to normal (I think) now that you have 32's. I know that Eaton makes a good no slip locker for the Ford 8.8 as well...

what type of offroading? 2wd or 4wd?

that should make a difference in your choices, and others recommendations....

skip the L/S if your going to offroad, go straight to either a selectable locker or full detroit.

eh, i dunno. if its jus light trails, or mud, or sand a l/s would probly be fine most of the time.
any heavy trails, or rocky terrain, and i would agree. unless you are good at the e-brake trick
