I constantly read articles about how indexes are awesome because of the low taxes, but I have yet to read an article talking about the great mutual funds for IRAs.

Well, here's an article giving 10 funds for retirement:

In IRAs you don't have to consider taxes so there should be some stand out funds for these purposes...anyone know any that may turely show be great for retirement investing inside an IRA?

The better question here is do you want one fund that tries to do it all or do you want a handful of funds each with different roles? For example, I could see if you want say 100% US stocks that Vanguard's Total Stock Market would be right up there. 80% stocks/20% bonds try Vanguard's LifeStrategy Growth. However, if you want say a mix of a large-cap fund, a small-cap fund, an international fund and something that is aggressive then things get to be a wee bit more complicated.

How complex did you want to go? Answer that and then I could give some samples I think.
