I've read where tons of people are swapping over to the 3.92 because of this very issue. I may be looking around for a rear end shop very soon.
I'll keep you posted.
Part of your issue, it that is a big, heavy truck for a 3.7. 3.21's aren't helping anything, but don't expect V8 power with a gear swap. I'm not sure what vehicle you came from, but your expectations may be a little much.
