Cool 2000 ram 1500 rear end rebuild

Recently purchased 2000 dodge ram 1500 slt it has the chrsyler 9.25 with a 3.55 rear end with LSD. The rear end is shot. I have an empty case needs all parts. I am going to have it rebuilt. I am inquiring about the gearing. What are the pro's and con's of switching the gear ratio or should I just leave it the same. This my first truck and I have only driven 50 or so miles. Any input will be appreciated. Also any input on axles are there any brands out there that come highly recommended?

I would just stay stock unless you are going bigger tires or towing. Then 4.10's
