That is such a dumbassed question that I am not sure on how to respond. But I would go with 3.54 in the rear for good road manners, and some 4.56 in the front for offroadability.

your best bet is to go with 5 .29 in both the front and the back. Depending on the vehical you should be able to drive 55 60 no prob. Depending on the rig 5.29s might not even be enough crawl with 38s and a dual case might be looked at
