Gear ratio question

Im wondering what for a gear ratio i should switch my 04 f350 to. im currently running 3:73s and 315/75/16 toyo mts and im putting on a set of 38/13/16 michelin xmls. the truck is a daily driver as well as i use it for work pulling cattle trailer with atleast 10-15000lbs loaded so i need this truck to be able to do this once i swap the tires. also the michelins are almost double the weight as they weigh 115lbs and the toyos are only around 70lbs. any input and advice is much appreciated

I'd put a set of 4.30's in it towing that much. Some might even suggest 4.56's but I'd go with 4.30's if it was me.
