You'll want to match your torque converter to your cam, a higher stall torque converter basically gets your motor into its power band sooner. You can check your stall rpm by holding your brakes and slowly adding throttle until the engine stops gaining revs (before tires start spinning) that is a rough estimate of your current stall speed.

If your truck starts making good torque at 2800 rpms then a 2800 stall converter would be a good choice, this allows the engine to rev too 2800 before the converter stops slipping and engages fully.
