Well 37's on 22's I would go with a minimun of 6" lift. Mpg should be left in the console when going bigger. IMHO that is.

the height of the wheel has nothing to do with it. width and offset matter. to the op, do a search i believe there are people running that combo on a leveling kit. but the ICON and RIZE 4.5" kits are very nice.

I agree on recommending Icon. 100% built in the USA, lifetime warranty, rides great with the super duty specific shocks and their springs, and it is very well built.

Here's a few pics of the Icon 4.5" and 37s:
