OK, I have no idea what gears Im running, but I have a 99 XLT 2WD 4door 5speed and I have 31x10.5x(something or another) Mud-Terrain A/T tires. Now I notice for a 3.0 V6, it doesnt have much umph but in 1st gear. What gears should I run and where the f**k do I get them?

EDIT: Thanks to fddriver, I now know that I have 3.73 non-limited slip 7.5inch. So how do I get a higher gear? Like 4.10s or something?
