WHAT IS DIFFERENCE IN RPM AT 75 MPH BETWEEN 3:31 AND 3:55

Hello. I am going to order a 350 cc long box shortly and am just trying to figure out which rear end I want. Tow pretty much daily but nothing above 6000 lb on a normal basis. Curious on how much the difference is on rpm and or mpg between these two different gears when empty as either one will work fine for what I tow. Usually run about 75 on highway when I'm not towing. Just for comparison lets figure stock 18" wheels. Thanks for any input.

Based upon a gear chart that I saw for the 6.7's, if you order a 3.31 with 18" wheels and then put on 20" wheels the difference is about 100 rpm across the board.

If the tires are the same size on both trucks the rpm of the 3.31 will be 93% the rpm of the 3.55. With 275/65r20" wheels that works out to 1760 rpm on the 3.55 and 1637 on the 3.31 at 75 mph. With 275/70 r 18 " tires it works out to 1808 rpm with the 3.55 and 1682 with the 3.31.
