3.21 is the best for MPG & not much else
3.55 is a bit less for MPG & can tow light trailers
3.92 a less again on MPG, & is an acceptable towing vehicle
4.11 gets less mileage, better towing capacity & does decent on a drag strip
4.56 starts in the range of NO gas mileage, more in the range of gallons per mile, but you can pull a loaded semi truck

hope this gives you a simplified explanation

The best bang for the buck are the 3:92's, small penalty in the gas economy department, limited slip rear-end, rated to pull respectable loads.

Gears will definitely wake up your truck! Should probably be the first thing you do!
