tires and gears

i am currently running 33's right now on my 95 4.0 and i am going to be installing a ford 8.8, it has the 4.10's. I will soon be going to 35's. now my question is am i going to be beatting myself by going with the 4.10's. Or should i go lower i dont want to if i dont have to. b/c then i would have to buy two sets of gears. 4.10's with 35 inch tires is better then 3.07's with 33 inch tires right.
i would appreciate any advice.

Hi, I have a 92 with the 4.0L and 5 speed. I am running 35's with 4.10 gears. I would not want to go lower (4.56) unless I spent most of my time offroad-my jeep is my daily driver. On the interstate, I hit 70 mph at about 2300 rpms in 5th gear. I dont like going that fast, so typically I go 65 mph in 5th at about 2100 rpms. I also have a nice smooth take off and good acceleration. So basically, if this is your daily driver which sees the interstate some, Id definitely go with the 4.10's. If you are only going to be off-road or never above 50 mph, go 4.56 or 4.88.
