axle gears

I'm looking to upgrade my axle gears but i'm not sure what to go up to.

its a 1988 k5 with a 383 and th400 and 31" tires. right now i'm running 3.73 gears but i feel like the truck could be a lot more torque-y. I'm thinking about going with 4.56 gears. top speed is not really a concern for me, I just want something thats going to easily break my tires loose when i stomp the gas. the 3.73's are pretty dissapointing. The truck never sees the highway but i do drive it around town quite a bit.
