84cj w/ 350! its damn slow, what gears to use??

my younger brother just bought a 84cj7/ t4/d300/amc20 spanking new 350 crate motor. i took it for a spin the other day and it was so slow! relativly speaking of course, but the oomph wasn't there.it does sound great though. he does highway speeds no problem, but lots of shudder and vibration while going through the gears. he is running 33's with 4inch spring lift. im not sure of his gear ratio, but i know he needs to go higher. he is a college kid who wont,most likly see the underside of dense foliage or big rocks. street machine, until i drag him out there..heheh thanks.

304/th400/ford 9"s front/back 7"lift 15x10/35's
it will run someday
