What gears are you running for 4.0 with 35s

I've seen a few similar threads, but mostly for 33s. Right now I'm on 33s with 4.10s and the gears are a little long, but not too bad. I have mostly seen 4.88s suggested for 35s and 4.56s suggested for 33s, but that seems a little short to me. A gear ratio/wheel size chart shows that 4.56s are actually close to stock setup for 35s. I wanted to get feedback from those who have already gone one way or another. Thanks!

4.56s will work but to get the seat of the pants feel of extra power go to 4.88s.

If you do more street/highway than trails and power work, then consider the 4.56s but I have always felt the feel of the power is a good thing.

I run 33” tires and will be getting re-gear soon and I will be running 4.56s.

Thanks for the replies. I also have the auto tranny FWIW. For now the truck is my only car/daily driver. I'm looking to get another car, but the truck will still have a mix of highway and offroad miles.
