Not at all. The engine can take much higher rpm's for longer periods.

Agreed, no issues running high RPMs. The O/D off holds the shift to keep the engine in the powerband for longer to give you more power for towing. And I hear you about babying the truck, my gf gripes when I spend a whole day working on mine.
