Big tires and short gearing makes for a short life for the trans. Since you have der diesel, 4.10's with 35's would probably work fairly well. 4.56's would make it a stump puller. You could push the house off the foundation without even breaking a sweat. (but, RPM would be higher when towing with O/D off......)

That's convenient.

I would seriously consider the 4.10's then.
