Gears

I am looking at running 3.31 gears in my 01 PSD. The main reason for this is better mpg's. Has any one put these gears in their truck? Where is a good place to get gears?

I do but the most would be a ~6000 lbs (Trans am + trailer). I would say that 95% of my driving will not be towing. How bad would it be, towing wise, to have the 3.31?

Getting moving might be slightly harder, but it shouldn't be too bad. The new 6.7 4x4's come with ELocking 3.31's and they can pull some serious loads....
