I got 3.73 on my 2010, works good enough without taking my speed out on the highway...

I had 4.10's in an 05 GT and went back to stock... I would vote for 3.73 for a daily driver..

Which transmission, auto or manual? 3.73 if manual. If automatic and you're *not* worried about your fuel economy, then 4.10. The manual will have more aggressive gear ratios as well as a tighter spread between gears so it's not necessary to go as aggressive as 4.10 back there and that could even be counter-productive. The AOD and AOD-E/4R70W automatics are notorious for having especially tall 1st and 2nd gears so a 4.10 gearset does not behave as radically as you would imagine when that transmission is used.

3.73 hands down... saves a little bit of gas and you still get the low end torque you want.
