I am more of an engine and driveline guy, and I like the Cummins. The unfortunate thing is that Dodge and the other OEMs put final drive gears in the axles that are too numerically high for high mpg. Big Dave has a Powerstroke with 3.08s and a Gear Vendors OD along with mods that are in line with what you want to do. Do a search on this site and see what he did.
