If your are asking about stock, the 4x4 comes in 3.55 or 3.73, 3.73 is the one to get of course.
Most with 35s like to go with 4.56 gears, and 4.88s with 37s.

I plan on 315s with the factory 3.73s with exhaust, tuner, and intake. Shouldn't be too bad I don't think.

Most guys do 4.56s with 35s. Mine does fine with the 3.73s though, I don't plan on regearing unless I move to 37s.

Oh yeah thats what you meant. The axle code your looking for is B6, which around this area when I was looking was pretty easy to find in a lot of the 4x4 trucks.

Yea 4x4 and tow package trucks are pretty much guaranteed to have 3.73s.

I wish 4.10s were an option for the rest of the packages, but i can't imagine trying to find aftermarket wheels to fit those 7 lugs

It's really too bad they didn't run a more standard lug pattern on those.

You can find 7 lug wheels to fit but i don't think they are strong as the steel type for weight/pulling/load.
Aftermarket wheels run about $200 each
