I don't think it would have to be a trailer queen with some thought put into it. Obviously you would need some low 3.xx gears for any real highway driving. But I know the Toyotas at least ~6.20s gets you back to stock for 40s. So factory 3.42s would work. You would have to build oil slingers, but thats been done before also.
My solution would be a decent oil slinger setup on the front with 3.07 or 3.21 (if you went JK) gears. Then just run one of my heavy shaved dana 44's or 60's and some 5.89 or 6.17 gears for the rear. With the 2.5 and 37's I think letting 'er scream at 3500rpm down the highway would work out best anyway.
