I usually don't recommend 4.10s but if you are driving less than 3,000 miles a year, then I say go for it!

For a daily driver that sees some highway miles, I would suggest 3.73s.

You guys don't feel 4.10s are too much for highway driving (70-80mph). What kind of RPM are you running at 75mph in 5th?

Even for the freeway, 4.10's are just fine. I think my 08 GT was turning over like 2300 rpms at 70 or so. I can't remember but it wasn't an issue. Still got about the same MPG. It's so much easier to get up to speed and makes the car feel "lighter."

Best. Mod. Ever.

410s all day... Don't fear the gear, also remember you are doing this for performance.
