Sufficient gear ratio for 285/18s & 3in lift?

So if the original gear ratio for the 08 sport is 3.73, then what would be a sufficient choice in ratio to compensate for the addition of 3in lift and 285/65/18 TRAIL grapplers (heavy combo!)?

Do you think 4.10s would do it? And what's the next ratio choice after that anyway?

thanks!

I'm running stock gear with that tire size and I don't have any issues.

i personally am going to go w/ 4.10s. i am personally running 33" TGs w/ the 3.73 gears. just fine for my driving, but the 4.10s will get me back to stock and put me in a little better powerband.

Hmmm, maybe so but my TRAIL grapplers are FAWKIN HEAVY (10ply whores) and I pull my 800lb jetski in the hills of Vegas and elsewhere, so i'd like to keep some of that decent factory holeshot.
Plus, the trail grapplers run larger than what a tire calculator will tell you. They are damn near 12in wide and 32.5+ in tall.

4.10 is the very next choice over the factory 3.73, correct?

My Terra Grapplers are Load Range E and are heavy too, but if I was towing with a lot of hills I would go with a lower gear too. My driving is all interstate and fairly flat.
