I'm wondering why anyone would want a lower geared rear end these days, everything has gobs of torque and power, so low gear not so important...

Had an old Landrover as a youngster... 4.71 rear end... pull anything, but try doing more than 55 mph with it... an that made the fuel milage suck too...

My preference is for 3.54 gears... so i'd take 3.73s as that is your question.

I'd say if you drive it empty alot and haul less that 14,000# with a strong diesel and a manual, 3.55 is great. The 1995 F250 Powerstroke 5spd truck has 3.55 gears and I absolutely love them with 235 or 265 16" tires. I'd see the purpose of using 4.10 or 3.73 if using a 6000rpm gas engine, but the Powerstroke rarely gets over 2500rpm when I haul. The neighbor has a 1996 Dodge with the same setup. It works great. I had people telling me I'd kill my clutch and driveline hauling 14,000# without 4.10, but it's got almost 300,000 miles on it now. The 3.55 keeps my engine right at or slighly below the "sweet spot". 1500rpm @ 55mph and 2000rpm @ 70mph. I did haul 18,000# last fall and that was WAY too much to get going with my fast first gear.
