Gears?

Just to curious to get everyones opinion on doing a gear swap. Since I have gone to 35" tires I'm seriously considering swapping to 3.73's. I have a like new set out of my 06' so I won't be buying gears but by doing this swap it puts the engine back to the stock RPM range since the stock tires were 33's. I'm not overly concerned with gas mileage as this isn't a daily driver but I would like to think that it wouldn't hinder it. In fact it might possibly help improve it...at least in town since in theory it shouldn't take as much power to take off and I would think it would tow a bit better with 15k plus. Thanks in advance for any input.

2011 F350 CC SB SRW LARIAT....SOLD!!
