you can squeeze 37" tires on a Pro-Comp 6.5" lift... a 8" lift does look better though for either 37"/38" tire.... as for rim size it is all about your preference.... i like the look of 20"x10 wheels on those size tires...... for gears i would say you would have to change it at anything over 36" tires just for MPG and more power.... if your stock truck has 3.73's i would go with 4.10's or even 4.54's.... hope this helps
