Upgrade to what? Why? What do you have now?

we will also need to know what your plans are for the truck... smaller tires/bigger tires? Off-road/street? Also what kind of driving do you do? City or freeway?

I think I saw a comment on the differential ratio thread that the 4.56 is a unicorn.

Yukon gears are awesome

Why are you wanting 4:56 you gonna be running 35" or larger tires?

I think I miss spoke. I have 31" BFG's with a 4:10 ratio now.

I want my truck to go faster and not too concerned with gas mileage, that would mean I want to go down to 3:08 or something? right?

nope, 3:08's you wont be able to move those tires. with 4:10's and 31's ur fine. dont know why u wanna re-gear when youve got the best combo right now...
