Default Which rear end gear ratio is best with 8 speed

I am trying to order a Laramie limited but am unsure of which gear works best with the 8 speed tranny. Standard is 3.21. I think I want 3.55 but isn't an option when spec'n it out. 3.92 is now an option but I wonder if that will be too much? Any suggestions. I want it to feel good on acceleration, but don't want to sacrifice too much mileage. Won't ever tow much more than a sled deck or two place sled trailer, or boat, etc. no heavy loads.
