3.73s or 4.10s will work great for ya... a 350 is a lot of power in a light truck... even with 3.42s or 3.08s you'd be pretty damned quick

I'm running 4.10s with a 4L60E tranny and 3000 stall lock up convertor with an LS1 motor

still get 22 MPG and the first gear is much better than when I had 3.42s. although I used to get 24 MPG.

I have had limited success with GM rears, although other peoples run them just fine. Something to consider before spending money on gears and getting them set up, look around for a factory rear with the gears you want.

You can also play temporarily with the tire size, mount some 24 inch vs 27. That is essentially a 10% gear change just like going from 3.4 to 3.70's approx
