If ever go with larger than 37" tires, I will find an 11.5" out of a leafsprung (2013 and earlier Diesel) truck and swap 5.13 gears and a 2014+ Power Wagon's locker into it! (that way I get to retain my stock locker wiring and I get the stock combo of a limited slip when unlocked and locker!!!)

With the added power (especially it coming on stronger at low rpms) of the 6.4L, I really don't think the 4.10s will be much if any of a penalty (I actually think it will be better!) compared to a 5.7L with 4.56 gears. If they keep the 4.56s, so much the better!!!
Whoever told you the lowest the 10.5 can go with is 4.56 was smoking crack. Sure you have to shop around, but the 10.5 can do 5.13 all day.
