My vote would be for the 3.56 rear. And 3.55 front.
I assume the two speed transfer case will take care of the torque needed in 4wd.
I tow in direct drive in the trans. its less efficient than over drive but less heat in the trans.
I am all for overdrive under light to medium loads but it is not quite as efficient as the numbers would suggest in my experience with heavy loads. IMO the gears are there to use and take strain off the clutches and engine. But i like to shift.
I also like manual unlock front hubs for maneuvering in close quarters while needing low transfer case. That way i idle in low low and back trailers with my front hitch.
