GEAR ratio?

Ok guys I just installed a set 37-13.50r22 Toyo's on my truck. I went from a 325-50r22(34.5"). My truck currently has 3.73 gears and my question is what would be the best ratio to go to. 4.10 or 4.30? Right now I am at about 1700 doing 70mph. I would like to be at about 2000rpm at 70mph. I don't tow too often but I tow heavy and I run a 250hp tune so I would like to regain some gear and not kill my transmission.

Any experience with this would be superb. Thanks in advance.

Most guys with 37's say that 4.30's are too low. 4.10's would probably be best. My only concern would be that going from 3.73's to 4.10's may not be worth it.

I would be 100% sure before you do anything. Swapping isn't cheap.

I remember seeing a guy on here with a black CCSB, black wheels with 37s I think he has king coilovers up front. I saw he had 4.30 gears. Does anyone know who I am referring to? I saw pics of him with a big a** toy hauled fifth wheel.
