4.56 will work great. If you plan on going bigger eventually, I would get 4.88's. I'm driving on them now and I'm hitting like 3,100 rpms doing 70ish. I can pull long grades in 5th and go up some pretty steep hils in 4th, where I was downshifting to 3rd. You will have to get new carriers to go with anything lower than 3.73's I believe. You can get open ones fairly cheap, or spend a couple hundred more and get a limited slip or Aussie locker. Depends on what kind of driving you want to do.

http://www.grimmjeeper.com/gears.html I'd say 4.10s for 32s, but I can't tell my *** from a hole in the ground

I'd also go with 4.56 but you might as well step up to 33's too.

Just for clarity, an Aussie is not a carrier but "lunch box" locker that replaces the internals of a carrier. Great for the front.

I'd recommend paying a pro to install gears. Someone with a good reputation and does them everyday for a living.
