Says i got chrysler rear and dana 44 front

Nice setup. Have you done any towing with them? Do you notice a difference with the 4 10. I only have 3.55 so its realy sluggish i feel bad for tranny

So i went to one shop to look into a gear reduction and there saying with chrysler 9.25 i can only go down to 3.73. Called another shop south of town and there saying not worth money to do all the work. He claims that at 35" tires going 100km/hr with 3.55 gears im only at 2200 rpm. They claim that is around average rpm with trucks on highway. Says dont waste your money since its not daily driver and only going to tow once in awhile

Sounds like neither one of those shops should get your business since they are both wrong. You can get at least as low as 4.56 gears for the 9.25, and if you are turning 2200 rpm at 100 KMH (62 MPH) you aren't even in overdrive, you would be at roughly 1600 rpm if you were.

I thought OP was confused bur you can go as high as 4.56s

At one time, 4.88's were available........ but, I wouldn't go that deep. (or, put tires that would need that kind of gearing on a half ton truck.) See if there is a 4x4 shop in the area that specializes in trucks. Have a chat with them.

Then there is my 40s with 3.55s on half ton axles

Yeah, but, you also bought stock in Dana, did you not? I mean, you might just as well get some return on all those front end parts you will be buying.... Not to mention transmission rebuilds.
