I sit at 2200-2300 rpm's at 70-75 mph highway driving and in town it is great. I do a decent amount of highway driving and personally like how my truck doesn't have to downshift on hills. Food for thought for ya.
What said above is true but my truck has no issues with 37's and 4.56 which would be equivalent to 35's and 4.10's

Trust me when I say....if you're worried about MPG on the freeway and can do it the correct way the first time (let me rephrase....there is no correct way, just correct way based on your usage) then do 4.10s with 35's to get better MPG on the highway
I dropped a good 1.5-2 MPG just upping my tire size which dropped my RPM on the freeway.
That same 70mph I cruise at 1950 vs the 2250
Power is still abundant and good in the city. Of course I was peeling 35's with 4.56
But I commute and needed better MPGs
Even 3.92s would suffice for 35's but since you're paying, might as well do 4.10 as its not that much of a difference.
** I'll get you pricing on those nutz as well
Can you email me once again as I cannot put name and username together yet. Lol
I will this time though
