    I need to know what's NOT okay to hit RPM wise in my 4.0 V6 with 35" tires.
    I usually shift at 3500, feels good, gives me power into the next gear... Am I okay or am I killing my truck?

    Reving your engine up isnt gonna hurt it. FWIW, Toyota tested the 1GR-FE (a supercharged one) for 200 hours at WOT under load.

    I do not see how it will hurt your motor or transmission unless you are just running wide open and doing a hard shift. Than if that the way you drive it is sure to wear out parts sooner than later. Just my two cents..

    just make sure the engine is warmed up before you rev too much...I usually try to stay under 2500 until then, but after that there are no limits!
