Prolly gonna go with a trutrack and was thinking maybee a 3.83 or a 4.11 gear. going with 285/75-16's soon and don't want my rig to be a gutless turd, but at the same time destroy my highway rpm's.

Okay throttle, you need to look up your current gear ratio. Then figure out the final size tire you are running (looks like a 33) and then use an online calculator to calculate the required gears to keep the same final gear ratio. I am not sure but you probably have a 3.69 or 3.54 (you need to check for yourself thou), so you will have to talk to hoopers and have a custom set made. At this point thou, you can get any gears you need (well not any but you have some options). Then have a local shop install or stop by hoopers and have them do the work. It will get expensive thou and may not be worth it to you.
