This is 5th gear in a '13 with 35" tires and 3.73's.
Why don't you just leave it in 5th?
I don't know that I could justify the expense of re-gearing. I don't tow anything more than a few miles, and certainly not very often. I do wish that I had a little more torque in 6th gear, but I just downshift a little more often. (Hey, thats why I spec'd a manual in the first place!)
I don't think the power loss is very substantial at all for 35's, and the only reason for me to consider would be for a gain in MPG.
a.) Is not going to be enough to offset the cost of regearing, in fact would probably reduce MPG
b.) And I can get the same pulling power in 5th with the stock setup
