rebuild ford F-250, 5.8

I have a 1991 ford F-250 with a 5.8 windsor engine with an RV cam and a e40d trans. I pull a 2 horse trailer and need more power. the trailer is about 4500 lbs with horses. I run about 35 to 40 MPH up hills and it gets hot. I need to flatten out those hills and am wondering if I can get the horse power I need from upgrades heads and pistons? or should I go to a 460.
Thanks for your help,

I have the same motor in a 77' f-250 I also put a towing cam in my engine. But I have a C-6 trans, I upgraded my V/springs and put roller rockers and I was amazed at the low end torque and more power that i had. Hope this might help you.
