Best gearing for 33`s?

I have Jack McNamara hypoid air locking diffs front and rear that are having some issues, so they are going to be ripped open on Thursday. I currently have 4.10 gearing, but am not happy with the on road performance with the 4.10 gearing and 33`s, but I also don`t want to step it up to 35`s. I`m quite happy with the 33`s. Unfortunately, this is my daily driver as well as my wheeler, so on road performance is a big concern. What would ideal gearing be for running 33`s? I figure I may as well look into this while I have the diffs. apart

Ideal for. . . ?

daily driving / as close to stock?

Im not 100% of the numbers, but isnt there a ratio available from GreatBasinRovers thats inbetween 4.10 and the stock 3.54(?)

33" is pretty close to stock 31.5", so a mild jump to maybe 3.7 in the diffs would probably do it. Ask the guy whos going to be opening your diffs on Thursday.
