Default Change Differential Gears

I have a 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 lifted a total of 7 inches on 35's. My current gear set is like 456 i believe, my rearend gears got ate up and im having to rebuild it. I was thinking about going to a 390 gear set up front and rear bc I dont do much 4 wheel driving just a good bit of trail riding and driving on the road. I was wondering what the guru's thought about it. This is my first Dodge to ever own.

Dude, running 35's and driving around town. Anywhere within the 3.92-4.10 would be good. IMHO, with the amount of power that's behind the truck, and as long as you don't dog it in the O/D gear, you can get away with 3.73's and get some good gas mileage. You shouldn't have to go to 4.56's until you get over 37" tires. Any other gearing questions, anybody can hit me up, I just moved over from Jeeps, where the power/gearing balance game is a learned art.
