Default what tires you guys pushing on a 4.9

i aquired a 95 f150 4.9 5spd 4x4 and i plan to swap a 79 dana 44 in it soon and im trying to get an idea how big of tires with the right gears will be able to still do 75 on the freeway. i made the mistake on my last solid axle ranger with a 2.3 and 35s with 4;56s and it could barely get out of its own way and could barely hit 70 in 4th and 5th was useless because it would just bog down. so inj the end i never wanted to take it anywhere offroad because i dont have the patience to have the pedal to the floor and doing 65mph. on the f150 i am wanting to go somewhere between 35-40 12.50 mts. so is there anyone out there with a lifted 4.9 that has some reviews?
