4th gear pulling

Has anyone tried to pull in 4th gear low range? If so how did it work. What mods were done. We want to try it because 3rd gear hits the rev limiter at like the 100ft. mark. Our truck has 33" tires and a programmer. Any input would be nice. Thanks in advance. Oh yeah its a 2005 6.0L

are you running a 6sp manual I'm assuming? Auto torque shifts only go from 3rd to drive...

No its an auto but with the SCT programmer they can lock out fifth gear when you put it in Drive. I was just wondering if it is geared too high or not. And 2nd gear high range is higher than 4th gear low range.
