Now I'm all confused! Lol. I'm leaning towards 4.88s since I'll be running Toyos and they are a bit heavier than BFGs. So I'm thinking I'll need the extra torque to turn em. Thoughts on this? Am I way off?

4.88s will be faster than 4.56s

4.56 is a safe bump for long haul street use with good offroad performance for 37s

4.88 is the highest street use gear but owners I hear complain on the decrease in range more than exacted as well as puts RPM into drone range for some exhausts.

Pick one as you can't go wrong. Less think more buy
