Default 35"s on 3.73 gears? 2004 FX4

How do you guys feel about 35" tires on 3.73 gears. I have a 2004 F150 FX4 and I just put 35s on it and want to know everyone's opinion on this and if it puts to much stress on the transmission.

Let me know what you guys think!

Can't think of it hurting anything. Your speedometer will be off though.

Keep the OD switch off for all surface street driving and only use it for freeway driving. The tranny going into OD under freeway speeds with that combination can create some ******* and has been discussed on other forums as a tranny killer combo.

I have 37" tires and put 4.56 and it worked out perfect.

With 35" tires I would go with 4.11
