What to do....

I'm looking into purchasing two new see doo rxp's. Only thing is im lifted on 32's and 3.73's gears. I know 4.10 would be ok but since im towing im assuming 4.56's would be best? I'm guessing it will affect fuel economy with the new gears but how much? They see doos are rated at about 792 lds dry weight....so i should be fine towing these right? I've towed ultility trailers many times before but i've always heard problems about tires slipping on ramps pulling a trailer out.

you will be fine trust me. I pulled my 2 xp's a 21 foot steel trailer with my 98 2.5 L. That truck had 3.45 gears in a 7.5 axle with no limited slip. I never had a problem on any ramp. The tires were about an inch taller than factory. I estimate my trailer with full tanks of fuel and gear to weigh 1600 lbs. You won't have a problem.
