I love my 4.10`s, now I want 4.30`s. lol. Your RPM`s should be about 2400 at 70mph with 4.10`s if you have a 3650 trans.
Yes you will need to correct your speedo.

4.10`s are a shorter gear. Therfore that means they rotate faster getting you up to speed quicker.
The numbers (rpm`s) will be different depending on what trans and gear you are running.

I would say 4.10`s will be your best for a 6er.
