Lightbulb 4.56 gears LSD What Should I Buy?

2011 5.7 4x4 with 3.55 gears no LSD

Thinking I want 4.56 with a locking diff or LSD

Questioning
1. MPG
2. Acceleration
3. Locking or LSD
4. Which combo is the Best
5. What part of the warranty might i void/ is it really a big deal
6. Stock 20'' not looking to lift but future upgrade to a 22-24in rim
7. Not intended for off-roading

Any Insight would be greatly appreciated!!

Acceleration......UP
Mileage........DOWN, not bad if you don't go 80 on the freeway
I would look at the Detroit True-Trac, it's a mechanical LSD, no wear on friction plates

I do tend to drive 80-85 on the highway how bad are we really talking at those speeds?

What gears do you have now? Your RPM's will go up considerately on the freeway.

are you planning on racing it often at the drag strip then?
or pulling a 7,000 lb trailer?

you already said that you won't be going off road

those are the only reasons to have that low of a gear

Currently have 3.55 gears

Will not be doing any towing or drag strip time

However looking for a much better 0-60 time without adding a cam or charger/turbo

Don't want the one wheel wonder in the rain/snow

I dont' want to void every warranty hence the reason i bought a brand new truck

I've heard city mpg will go up with 4.56 gears and highway down a little depending on how fast your going.
