Ya don;t get less than a 4.88 gear and ditch the spool

Yup go to the track and run it.

1/4 mile ET is 1/8th x 1.57

1/4 mile MPH is 1/8th x 1.27.

The MPH tells the tale.

weight the truck on a scale with you in it.
(true weight to power ratio)

This truck needs a supercharger.

I don't think you realize how heavy 4000lbs is. It takes a lot of power to move that. You're making around 350 crank hp, so like 300 at the wheels. 14's is pretty darn good for what you have. You need forced induction or shed a bunch of weight to make it into the 13s
You should get it dyno'd as it sits right now. Its like $60 and hour or something, and its well worth it. You can get it tuned perfectly and make sure you're getting every drop of what the motor can give.
