Depends. Where are you wanting to improve your fuel mileage? 3.73 is a good all around gear while something like 4.10 would be a city gear. A 3.55 or a 3.08 like I have is a great highway gear.

I have found 3.73 is great for city driving but most of my driving is highway. Is the 3.08 you have oem or aftermarket?
