My truck had 305 96' Chevy had 3.73 orginally, but I'd say 4:56 would be fine.

4.56's probably be alright . . my brother's f250 running 38.5's we put 5.13's in and with overdrive does great down the interstate . . 75-80 mph at like 2200-2500 rpm

i had 4.88 with 44's with no od and did good down the street but since ya got over drive ya can go with just about anything ya want
