I would not mess with it... I ran 37's and 3.73's for years and loved it. Now with 4.30's I am back in the RPM range I should be, but its now louder in the cab and such...

I had 3.73s stock and went to 4.10s. The difference in engine speed at 70 mph went from 2000rpm to 2200rpm, which is good because at 2000rpm and below, my truck was sluggish.
