Default 3.73 or 4.10's with 305/50/20's?

Im getting a Trutrac unit and some gears in about two weeks.

What gears should i get with the above mentioned tire size?

I don't care for millage. I do little hwy driving. I want my truck to be fast. All around street fast. I dont take it to the track.

Any recommendations?

Are you sure you don't have 3:73s right now? 3:73s is factory for some f1's that or 3:55s. I would consider 4:10s or 4:56s. Cause you do mostly city and want fast. 4:56s is fast.

That size is the same as stock diameter. I am happy with my 3.73 and find it gives decent acceleration for city driving.

Thank you. I just worry that too low of a gear (4.10 and higher). Would throw me way out of the power band.

Considering that you can order your f150 with 4.10's I wouldn't worry about it taking you out of the power band. That tire measures out to be a 32x 12in wide tire. That would work great with 3.73's and even better with 4.10's. If you love to go fast around town and don't do too much highway driving, I'd go with 4.10's if you want to run off-road at all, or just haul *** around town. I had 4.56 's with 35x 12.50 and I could burn both rear tires no problems but with 32's I'd go with 3.73's or 4.10's. Just my .02 cents.

Keep in mind I also have the 3.7. You have a lot more torque than I do so it should be even better. 4:10 wouldn't take you out of the power band though if you go that route. Its a hard choice, I can't speak for 4:10 as I've never driven one.
