if manual go with 3.73's if auto go with 4.10's If you use the interstate alot go with 3.55's, it would be benificial to get a FR T-lok to go with it as the same time becuase you would have to get the differential pulled inorder to install the gears.

figure 800 dollars after it's all said and done.

you'll gain some in city mileage, specifically stop and go traffic, you'll lose a bunch in highway mpg.

more wear on your valvetrain, less on your transmission.
