Default What Ring And Pinion

I have a 99 dodge ram 1500 sport with a 318 in it. It currently is lifted on 35" s and it is only used as a Dune truck. It has a stock 318 that runs great so I do not plan to mess with it anytime soon but it is definitely low on power. It performs awesome in low range and the power is perfect but it is also nice to be able to be in the dunes in 2wd but it does not have the power to turn the paddles, I am hoping to make that up in gearing, I was wondering which ratio to go with, should I go to a 4:10 or 4:56 or should I go even higher? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated
