If you are going with a 5.5" lift and running 35's you should be good with stock gears, but it would never hurt to re-gear. I only currently have a 3" lift on mine with 35's and I will eventually be going to 4.10's because I don't need the hardcore gearing of the 4.56's, but til then I am perfectly fine with running my stock gears. Now if you plan to tow a lot then the 4.56's might be a good idea. Only thing I know for sure personally that I would be dragging around would be a utility trailer with a motorcycle and some gear so the 4.10's will work perfect for my application.

Oh and very nice pics of the truck. It looks good. Also always good to see a truck being used for what a truck is designed for, other than being a work horse of course lol.
