Appearance Modifications w/ a couple questions

On my 08 f250 im going to buy shocks soon any ideas on the best kind? I do alot of just daily driving but I do haul a 28 foot enclosed car trailer and 28 foot camper from time to time.

Also im wanting to see if I can clear 35x12.50x20 with stock height with a set of 20x10? And do I need to get them a certain offset or stock?

Last truck has 175k on it would it hurt the tranny to do a filter change and use 7.5 quarts of new mercon sp or should I just reuse fluid I took out of it?

Thanks for any input guys its appreciated.

I would get Bilstein 5100 shocks or if you can afford it get the 5160 series shocks. You will need a leveling to not rub while hitting bumps and turning. Lastly I would change the fluid out of the pan and NOT reuse the same fluid.
