Gear Change

Hey everyone - I'm lookng to do a gear change in my X. Currently have the 3.73's and looking to go to either 4.30's or 4.56's for better towing. So I have just a few questions...

1. What brand would y'all suggest?
2. Where can I get them?
3. Who can change them out for me?
4. How much beer will it take?

i would go with a 4:10 ratio, that is what my diesel 250 has and it tows great and it dont suck the fuel real bad, second do you have 4 wheel or 2 wheel drive? if you have a 4x4 then you will have to change the front as well.

there are many gear companies out there i would start checking them out. to me i go with the one that saves me money
