need gearing options

Ok guys, time to do something here. I want to be able to go faster than 50 in fourth gear...being able to use fifth would be wonderful. Here's my specs:
just rebuilt the engine, approx 500 miles on it....
1300, bored .020
Power Punch II head with 1600 exhaust valves
AAPA low end cam
Calmini header (this coming weekend) and 2" exhaust
31/13.50/15 Mickey Thompson Baja Belted Radials
2" Sky Mfg Body lift
3" Calmini heavy duty lift springs, sprung under

I think I want to go with a gearset. I would like to work on both my crawling and my top end. What other options are there besides GRSII's? Most of my wheeling is sand, but I do go to the mud and hills/rocks on occasion. My zuk is also my daily driver. I guess what I need is a good all around performer!
Anybody got any other ideas??

Re: need gearing options

Outside of the Tcase and Suzuki gears, you have US Gears as a great option too. For your size tire though, I wouldn't go ANY lower than a 4.57.

Re: need gearing options

My thoughts exactly!I run 462's and stock t-case(not for much longer!)462-512 would get you zippin' again.With the set up I have now I get 75-80 on the highway........And creep good on low 4wd.For you it would be helpful....
