4.56 to get back to just a little over stock, or 4.88 if you want better offroadability. It'll be a bit low for the street, though, but not bad. If you ever plan to go to 35's, then go 4.88 and live with it for the time being.

I have an auto with 4.56... on the highway I see 60mph at 3000rpm... not the best for gas mileage but fun to drive around town. I am in a 4.6l though....
