air bags are a good option, especially if you plan to tow a lot. I thought about bags but I do not tow often anymore, so we will see on that.
The 4:10's are great as long as you are not after fuel economy. I have not updated my sig, but I lifted my truck a bit and put 315/75/16s on to help bring my gear ratio closer to 3:73's. If I towed on a regular basis, I would have left the truck close to stock.
When I had it stock, I got around 14-15mpg city and 17-18 hwy running around 70-75mph iirc. That was last summer and I have done some work to the truck since then. Ie, injectors, turbo, fuel, etc. I'm hoping to remain the same with my current setup.
Since my current tires are pretty much 35s, I can feel a loss in power on the top end but nothing too drastic. Overall, not much power loss from stock 32s to the 35s with 4:10 gears However I should be pushing somewhere close to 500hp from what i'm told, IDK.
