IMO 4.10 is too much for a DD, i would do 3.73 have the best of both worlds
The difference between a 3.31 and 3.73 is about .2 in the 1/4 mile so its not a BIG improvement but with 3.73 will be more responsive and more fun for the street.
Plus 4.10 on a long trip will get annoying as HELL

I'd drag racing is your only goal go big. 4.56 or higher. If you need to drive it around town the 3.73 are great and a nice tradeoff would be 3.90.

I had 4.10's on my 1984 with AOD, and drove all over with no complaints, on the 2013 I'd say it's even easier with the 2 overdrives to get away with it. Thats my next step, in the spring, along with lightweight weld wheels and slicks.

Also depends on if a SC or turbo is in your future. That shorter gear will end up hurting your ET if you go taller than a 3.73. If your staying NA than go for the 4.10, if boosting go with a 3.53 or 3.73 max. I'm also a 2011 auto, chose 3.73. RPMs went from 75mph @ 2,000, to about 2,400. Eat a bit more gas but eff it. I love the response!
