tire size,gears-33s,3.55

I am going to put a 3 inch bodylift and 33 inch ATs on 8 inch wheels on my 96 bronco.It has 351 mass air,e4od,3.55 gears.My question is can i live with the stock gearing,i occasionaly pull a 3-4000 lb.trailer.Some people say no its to doggy in overdrive,but ,i worked in a construction company and we had f250s with 3.55 gears and 351s .Stock tires on f250s are the same diameter of a 33 AT,so the overal gear ratio is the same as what i am trying to do.The f250s had e4od trans but two wheel drive,we pulled skid loaders almost everyday.These trucks werent rockets with trailers on but they got the job done.Anybody running this setup?thanks for any info,Bo

I run 33's and stock 3.55 gearing. I think it is fine, but I don't pull anything either.
