I'd suggest a gear swap. 4.10's are a little much IMO. And the whole front suspension and axle can come out in about 45 mins so if you found axles in the junkyard with 3.73's or 3.55's it'd be a couple hour long project. My little 4 banger 2wd ranger has a 3.45 axle and let me tell you, that whole "1600 rpm at 65mph" is pretty awesome. And it'll still haul my 600 lb atv.
