We need more info. Welcome to the boards.

What do you want to use this truck for? Hotrodding around? Work truck? Dragstrip duty? You'll probably be happiest with a trans that has a first gear at least in the 2.88:1 to match your 3.08s.
Do you want an automatic or a manual?

2.95 1ST gear V8 T5 with the S10 tailhousing conversion would solve a lot of your problems. Good to 300hp or more if you don't whip it too hard. Sidestepping the clutch daily would kill it.

does a lot of these conversions. Hes in CT though.
