A couple of questions, please:
You mentioned air lifts. I thought air lifts were a no-no if you are using a load-equalizing hitch?
As for the axle ratios, 4.10s with 33s and 4.56s with 35s have been recomended to me as optimum for off-road running. Any real problems with towing with them other than the milage? Given a choice between optimizing for towing, and optimizing the ability to get back to civilization from the middle of nowhere, well, I prefer the latter choice!
And thanks to the others who welcomed me to the forum.
i have the 3.73's in my mega cab and currently have 33's, i've gone off roading a few times and i've had no problems with the gear ratio. i also plan on towing a 5th wheel, or large tow behind, and going to 35's, 6" lift, and keeping my 3.73 setup, i'm sure the hemi can more then handle that, the tranny i'm not so sure about....
