As far as I can tell from other guys with lifted trucks you'll be alright. Most guy's I know who have lifts put 4.56's in when they have 37" tires because it will make their effective gear ratio more like a 4.10. With 35's I'd assume the ratio would go up a little bit but it's still a good combination to have. You'll get good fuel economy and still have some get up and go when you need to

if you have 3.73s (i think) and jumps to 4.56's on 35's you will probably have more get up and go then you do now....how big of a lift are you looking to do...37's are great with a 6" on a 2500

2500's have the option of 4.88s as well. If you don't do a lot of hwy driving, ya might want to consider. But 4.56's sound right on the money.

The recognized rule is 33" and taller 4:56, smaller 4:10. If you want taller than 35's I would think the 4:88's would be the way to go. Not only are you going to a taller tire but you are also increasing drag with the lift. Good luck..

4.56's but not to sure on the gear ratio pricing for your differential (10.5"?)

Also if you are going to have a shop do it then gotta take in the price of labor for both axles.
