Talking Should I upgrade Gearz

So I currently have the entire rear Diff pulled apart to replace the pinion barrings. I have 3.55 gears stock but with 22" rims and lowered I am considering just ordering 4.10's for it while its appart. just looking for opinions. What would y'all do?

It seems to me you would lose some gas mileage
you would gain some power at the lower end
are you thinking about doing anything else ?

If you want to be quicker around town, it would be a nice swap, but if you do mostly highway driving, stick with what you want. 4.10s and that are great for the track!
