Workram is on a distinguished road

I am running a 1996 which was a V-6 5-spd, stuck in a 5.2 super easy swap. It is a little doggy pulling a 20ft gooseneck, she's getting a 3.55 rear end right away. Somehow the V-6 had a 3.23 rear end in it. I am hoping the 3.55's will do it but may do a cam as well. The engine seems happy when it's screaming but the grunt isn't there without the Rpm, to me that seems like a cam issue. I would love a diesel to but as great as they are can't justify the price for all the days I pull, also parts for 3/4's are a big step up in price.
