Default Gearing Question

I am about to remove my axles and have new gears installed. I have an 82' wagoneer w/ a 360. Automatic transmission and looking to turn 33's. Currently I am running 31's and she won't let the motor turn any rpm's. I currently have 2:73 gears. I do a bit of off roading but also drive the vehicle to the trails and don't want to go to low. Any suggestions on what gears to go with? The mechanic who is replacing my gears is recommending 3:73's. Also he wants to do something with the rear so I'll have posi? Thanks for any help in advance.

3.73's will be a good all around gear with the 33's. If you don't do a lot of free way driving than you could go with 4.10's.
being on the eastern edge of the central time zone gets dark WAY to early.
