since you mocked it up with a comp 270H cam i would say just use that cam. IMHO they are a pretty decent cam for a mild build where you may want a tiny bit of that lope from a larger cam. it wont be too much. i would strongly suggest changing out those 3.08:1 gears though, since this is a 4x4 i would guess that you and your son are looking at tires in the 33x12.5" range and right of hand i'm not sure if they were still using the th350 in 84' for the 1500 trucks or if they had already switched over to the 700R4. honestly either way a set of 4.10's is almost nescessary
