Default 1995f150 2wd rear end swap

I have a 1995 f150 2wd with a 4 in lift on 33s. I have lost my highway speed. Around town is OK except my start off is a little slow. What gears should I regear to. I'm thinking 3.55 or 3.73.

3.31 to 3.55 is not much of a change for the money that you'll spend. I switched to 4.10 with 235's and it really makes the 300 come alive. Here's a link to the site I used to help me make my decision.

I've found that at my normal highway cruising speed I need to be at least at 2100 rpm's to have any power.

i'd have to agree a 4.10 would be the best bet but if you want a 3.55 limited slip i have one sitting in a rear end right now out back i'd let go pretty cheap plus shipping
