I would go with an 18" rim on a 37. 20 would look good also but i guess i dont know what you mean by it will be in the desert. I wouldnt go any skinnier than a 8" rim or any wider than a 10" rim. 10 will make your tires look wider, 8 will make them look a bit narrower but also taller.
Like enough sand where you have to air down to get around or hard packed sand that is almost cement?
I say this cause the smaller rim you have the better characteristics your tires will have when you air down. The smaller the wheel the bigger the sidewall and therefore a bigger footprint spreading the weight more evenly when aired down. Also a smaller rim will receive less damage from scraping on rocks cause you have more sidewall and will also ride a bit better with more sidewall to cushion bumps.
These trucks are heavy and sink fast in soft sand. But if you have ever driven a truck aired down its a night and day difference traction wise.
Sh*t, some people will tell you to go with 22's but really its up to you.
