I just talked to a off road shop and they said they would put 4.10 in front and rear and put new bearings while they were in it for around 800 so ur price isn't to bad I don't think

Those prices are great, I got quoted $1700 for front and rear. That's installed with a complete rebuild kit for both front and rear axles.

IMHO 4.88's would be absolutely rediculous. Especially if you ever touch the interstate. I'm planning on doing 4.30's. Puts you back real close to the stock gear/tire ratio.

Agreed, I had 4.88's in my Z71. I cant imagine putting them in my powerstroke, way too low of a gear for the power we have in these trucks.

Get 4.56's. Even though 4.30's will bring you close to stock, if you're gonna spend that much money you might as well go a little lower and get a little more power. Don't plan on running any tire smaller than your 37's though, if you do then go with 4.30's or even 4.10's.
