I've got 4:10s and 245/75R16 tires with a manual 5 speed. I run about 2500 at 65 mph.

2100 RPM at 70 MPH, 3.0 / auto / 3.73 gears / stock size tires.

if the OP runs the highway alot he may want to consider some taller tires, which should drop the RPM's at speed quite a bit. my mother's truck actually gets better fuel economy with taller tires on it.

My edge had the 4:10s from the factory. Not sure if they were standard or optional for the edge, though.
