Blazer gear ratio change for Chevy 292

I have a rat rod with a 1995 Blazer 8.5-10 bolt rear end, with G-80 Eaton limited slip,3:72 gears. This is matched up to a Chevy 292 with a 3 speed Saginaw tranny.
This setup is to low for cruising. 55mph=2500 rpm, I was thinking of changing the rear end gears to a 2:73 or 3:08. Any help/ideas,suggestions would be appreciated......
