What gear ratio

What is a good gear ratio if I am running 37" tires and I tow a 12000 LB 5th wheel. Dont want to kill Hwy MPG but still wont pulling power. Would 4.10 be enough or 4.56 be to low

i would go with 4:10s, thats what i have in my truck. the 4:56s would give you alot more power thought but i would not put them in unless i was running a 40in of taller.

If you had 35 inch i would say 4.10. Seeing as you got 37 inch put in 4,30 ratio. You could do 4.56 also if you tow alot,and heavy!

Anyone running 4.30 with 37s how does the truck pull with that combo. What is the RPM of the truck at 70 mph ?
