School me! need new gears with 37's?

ok enlighten me please. I tried to search but not sure what to search for. if you can answer or direct me to a thread that has already answered.

I am putting 6 inch and 37's on my 2012 F250 short. Do I need to change gearing?
I will tow a boat and a camper. I also daily drive the truck.

along with that. please tell me what the different gearing numbers reference.
thanks.

If you have 3:55 then you should be fine.

I have the 3.55 gears and 37's. I tow an 11k lb trailer with no issues. I am normally turning around 1600 RPM at 80 w/ no load. (note....the speedo says ~73 when I am doing 80).

yes, I have 3.55.

are you able to re calibrate the speedometer, or does changing the gears fix the speedo?

so no way to fix the speedo? that sucks. and the general consensus is that 37 will be fine with 3.55 gears?

If you were running 20" rims from the factory then that is tallest the computer will accept. Mine came with 18's, so when I bumped up to 295's, I had the dealer set the truck for 20" wheels and 275/70/20's and now I am only .5 mph off.
