you'll be off 5.7% over your 35s assuming you have already corrected for 35 from stock or 16.6% over stock

if you have 3.55s you would need to regear, if you have 4.10s you maybe able to get away without, but i would

Yeah i would reccommend regearing for sure on 37's. At least 4.11 if not 4.30s. I went with 4.56s wishing i went with 4.30s alil better on the highway but its all what your gonna do with your truck after you put the 37s on it. Like tow alot or just drive it everyday??

I have 395/75r16 mtz's with 3:73, the 7.3 got the torque to lug the truck up hills in O/D... but if ya run like my set up get ya Gota learn to get into lock up before any hills or else the tranny temps will climb faster then the space shuttle. And when that happens you'll get some practice at replacing the pump seal that blows when the boiling hot fluid returns form the unlocked converter...
4:30 gears and 35's are next on my list of upgrades...

I am running 37's with 4.10 gears and it does fine. My last truck I had 37's with 3.73 gears, it did fine when a DD, but was a dog when towing.

As my truck sits now I am running about 8mph faster than what my Speedo reads, and turning 2k at 70. Hand calculated I am getting 19-21mpgs if I keep my foot out of it.

I also tow heavy (about 12k) without issues, have never been over 900 on the tranny temps.

what gears do you have now? iirc if you have 3.55 to go to 4.10 you need new carriers to which adds more to the cost
