sounds like you are running in the 4s in the 350s range is probly all the 240 wants to pull or 3.70 depending on tires

I would say if you running stock tire you have at least 4.11

with stock size tires and not pulling much you can probly run 3.55 which would be in some cars
since you could have a dana or ford rear end the ratios may vary some,but in the nieghborhood between 3.50 and 3,70 should do good
don't know what year truck you have but in the year specific forums you can get some good advice
