Default 2011 Ram 4X4 cc diesel best gear ratio

I was just wondering if anyone could recommend what the best gear ratio would be for a 2011 ram crew cab 4X4 2500/3500 SRW with a cummins and 6 spd auto live in western Canada pulling 6500lb rv trailer threw the mountains. Just getting ready to do factory order hopefully get new HO engine not sure when the second quarter build date is. Thanks for an advice.

3.73 would be your best bet. Plenty of power and still could fuel mpg(well for a 6.7 atleast)
You would be more then ok with 3.42s but I think 3.73s would make you alot happier
edit: but you can only get 3.42s with a 6 sp and 6.7. With an auto 2500 your choices are 3.73 or 4.10. 4.10 is too high for occasional light towing
