Gears. Most base 2 wheels have 355 gears but you can jump to 375 or 380 with out looseing to mutch top end and looseing gas milage and adding alittle low end grunt.

3:92 gears were the only option for your rear differential from the factory although 4:10 was offered in the off road 4wd. 3:92s with stock diameter tires that should be plenty.

I would also consider a SCT tuner from Sean at Hemifevertuning.com. Tell him you want the desertdog eco tune. That will give you a nice low/mid range boost as well.
