Default running rich

i am running waaayyyy too rich.

fouling up plugs without blow-by or burning oil
poor gas milage
not throwing a code

solutions previously attempted:
cleaned air filter (using a spectre cone filter)
changed plugs and prayed
changed fuel filter
used injector cleaner
changed 02 sensors
cleaned maf, throttle body, and intake manifold

glasspack muffler as replacement for oem
high flow intake

possible solutions:
increase gap of spark plug (due to carefull research i have found that you can safely open your plug gap to .063 [that is with a high performance coil] i am thinking about jumping up from .044 to .048 or .050)
or any suggestions as i would like to try something that has next to zero chance of backfiring on me

2000;3.0 vulcan;flowtech raptor muffler; no cats;k&n oil filter;goodyear wrangler tires;spectre cold air intake;200 watt pioneer headunit with 2 kenwood jl-80 boxes holding 2 10 inch pyle subs, 2 kenwood 4x6 2ways and 2 polkaudio 4x6 plates and two xplod 3 ways in the doors;plenty of scratches dings and dents, chipped (flashpaq)
