re-gearing Q's

Hey everyone, I have 3.55's in my truck, 5-speed, with 33's now. I want to do a 6 inch lift, (probably deaver springs) or (national spring co) and i want to run 37'' bfg a/t's on the stock 16'' alum. wheels. My question is do you think i will beable to pull 37's ok with the gears, i really dont want to change them out to 4.10's or 4.56 i would like to just keep the 3.55's so any info would help alot thanks guys let me know your op.

they'll work but you'll be putting more stress on other components. getting gears is a precautionary measure i've been told lol
