Wanting up upgrade from stock turbo

I am getting my studs done right now an I want to upgrade to a bigger turbo but I'm not sure what will be good with my set up.
I have a 8" Lift on 38's. Cai, 5" exhaust, egr, oil cooler SCT, CTS monitor. I have the blue spring kit they are gonna put on for me.

I tow a 24 car hauler full of dirt bikes an 30 ft travel trailer. It is my daily driver.

What yall think?

I'd look into re gearing before throwing a bigger turbo on, that would help out a lot more than a turbo IMO.

A re-gear with that size tire would be a great idea. 4.30s or 4.56. I'm on the fence on which ratio would work better with that large of a tire.

How much was your gears? You having them done by shop or
You putting them in?
Changing the gears going to make that big of a difference?

I went with Yukon gears front and rear I have a little over 800 in them that's oil and bearing kits as we'll, and I'm having a shop install them but you could do it yourself if you had time
