A programmer would help but I think a set of 4.56's or 4.88's would really wake that puppy up and get it moving and most likely be easier on fuel as well

i was talking more in terms of physical stress on the drive line and gas milage, although a tuner would be great i agree.

Change it to 4.10 min for the price you are getting it
Truck will be sluggish with 3.73 and 37's
BTW
Did you take any pics?

IMO 4.10 wouldn't be worth the money you'd get a better bang for the buck with the tuner, I run 4.56 gears on a 35.5 tire it works out the same as running 4.10 on stock 31.5 tire's if I was to run a 4.10 it would be the same as the stock 3.55 ratio that came with my truck not enough to get it moving on 35.5 tire's IMO I would put minimum 4.56 in there it will preform better and be better on fuel as well

Have to agree with Dave 4.10 min and 4.56 ideal
It will be hard to get the truck going with 37's

IF this hasn't confused anyone enough if you were to use a 4.56 gear on a 35" tall tire it would be like ruining a 4.10 gear on stock 31.5" tires, so a 37" tall tire with 4.56 would be around a 4.00 - 4.10 ratio If you like gear you may want to consider a 4.88 ratio

and yes back to your othe question ...with the right gears would be easier on the drivetrain
