Default What mods for low down torque 5.9

HI guys, I am wondering what parts are available, you would recommend for a pre-ISB 5.9 for brute low down torque, it is not a daily driver, it is used for off roading.
My plan is to put in a Chevy Blazer with upgraded Dana 60 up front and a 14 bolt out back. The trans would be an upgraded TH-700R4.
The suspension would also be upgraded to handle the extra weight.
There doesn't seem to be as many parts for a Ramcharger?

On the front page of "Diesel Power" magazine features a 1993 Ram that drag races with an old 12 valve. Pretty good brakedown of his modifications to get 300 hp. Modified fuel pump, bigger injectors, compound turbos for better low end torque, etc. See if you can find that article. PM me if you can't I'll copy and mail it to you, or mail the magazine. Ramchargers aren't common, but are awesome off roaders. Often thought how cool if you found w wrecked hemi Ram, and used it to build a powerful Ramcharger.
