5 speed with O/D swap in an OBS??

Long story short I'm running a 4.56:1 ratio in my 95' f-350 reg cab with 6 inches and 35's soon to be 33x15.50's ( use to be on 40's hence the gears being so tall) and would like to try and stay with the ratio I have if possible and swap to a 5 speed with overdrive vs the e4od that's in there now so I can keep my pulling power but actually be able to drive above 50 mph without red lining. I'm not opposed to swapping back to a factory ratio but figured if I am already going to have to pull the trans rebuild it more for my new power additions I might as well swap it for something with the extra gear if possible, has any one heard of or done a swap like this?

A ZF5 has a .76 OD
An E4OD has a .71 OD
You will not even notice the difference between the 2

Looking for Blue 40-20-40 seat for OBS. PM me if any known
