Question V10/ 5 speed with 4:10 and 285s? Thoughts?

I have only had my Ram for a short while. It goes fine but the 3:55 axles gears seem a little tall on the highway. Anyone running 4:10 and a 5 speed? Thoughts on the combo?

I stumbled upon a diesel owner with the same axle combo with 4:10s that might want to do a straight swap.

I probably won't go bigger on the tires for at least a little while. I'm very familiar with axle ratio swaps and have done many in Jeep axles. Just curious on driving impressions with the V10 as I'm still getting familiar with it.
