Use the transmission rpm calculator in the middle to check rpm at different speeds. The transmission ratios for the NV3550 are 4.01-2.33-1.39-1.00-0.78
Other transmission gear ratios can be found with a Google search if you need.
Oops, I told you about it but didn't give you a link! http://www.ringpinion.com/calculators/calc_rpm.aspx

PHILDABEAST I don't know how to post a link but look up the grimjeeper calculator and you can compare different gear ratios and tire sizes for your exact setup. It's a very handy tool.

Big Cole A stock rubi came with 31s and 4.10 gears which is close to 35s and 4.88s. Your rpms will be nearly identical as what was specified by the engineers. 4.88s and 4.56s aren't awesome offroad but merely as good as stock considering your larger tires
