Gearing, 4th and 5th

Got a quick question for you guys,

I have 33 in tires and 3.07 gears with a D30/D35. On the highway, I can't get over 70 mph in 5th, but in 4th i get to 85 mph. I know why, but is it bad for the Jeep to stay in 4th?

Thanks guys!

Probably wont hurt anything besides your mileage. Either way, you are overtaxing the rest of your drivetrain. A regear would save you a lot of wear and tare.
