what gears to get

hey all i am sortof new here but i was hoping you could help me out on what gears to get. Right now my truck has 44 swampers and it does ok with what i belive is the stock gearing but acceleration sucks. will gears help this. my top speed is fine driving on parkway but i was hoping for some more pep. Im running a just rebuilt 454 with some goodies(roller rockers, edlebrock intake, 850 double pumper holly carb .... and so on). so i should have plenty of power right. any suggestions would help thanks.

Re: what gears to get

What tranny-4 speed or auto? What front end, 44 or 60? I am hoping 60, unless it is just a tarbaby. I would go with 4.56's or 5.13's for low end, with 44's hi end shouldn't be an issue anyways. If its stock gears, my guess is it currently has 4.10's. obviously you aern't too worried about gas mileage anyways.
