Default what to do???

hey guys, i am trying to decide what to do here.......my truck currently has 35" tires on it and it has a hell of a time going uphill. does pretty good on flat ground though and really good downhill....lol. it has the 5.2L and i am trying to figure out if i should get lower gearing or just go down to 33"s?? has the stock 3.55 gears now and i dont do a lot of towing but when i do its slow going. i plan on some more engine upgrades, CAI, TB Mod, and more i'm sure. what would be my best bet for the towing and keeping speed as far as gearing? i think that 4.10 might be too low. anyb ody know about 3.92's?? Or any other alternatives?? thanks in advance

3.73 isn't much of an up in torque...I'd go at the very least with 3.92's but for towing with a 5.2L I personally would go with the 4.10's
