I would get the 3:92's. My R/T has 4:10's and I still get 20 mpg out of this truck. I have 11k on her and my lifetime mpg is 17.7mpg. That includes towing a 5k lb trailer all over the place and driving very fast at times.

I found several 8 speeds with 3.55 gears around me when I was looking. However, none were laramies, and I couldn't find an oudoorsman with a sunroof and the 8 speed. In the end I traded the options I wanted for the gear ratio since my heaviest load I tow is only 3,850#, and that only one to 2 times a year for less than 100 miles at a shot.

I guess in the end I'm the kind of owner the loaded leather trucks are aimed at. 85% of the time I'm only carrying 3 people, 75% of the time on paved roads, with a bed load of about 400#. any trailer I tow could be handled by a compact car.

The people that have the 3.92 ratio, does the engine wrap up a lot or does it stay down while driving around.
