More re-gear q's

Ok, I'm either going to get 4.55 or 4.88 re-gear( currently have 3.73). I have some questions for anyone with a 2.5L, 32" or larger tires and either of those gears.

1. What is your top speed? and how many RPM's are you doin at that speed?

2. How many mpg do you get?

3. Are you happy with how much power you have?

not a big difference...go 4.88 for sure...the difference in your RPM's will be minimal between the two so i recommend the lower gear.
