35's or 37's...deciding F-350 vs F-450

I'm picking up a 2013 F-350 dually or 450 this week. I know they're almost identical other than the wider front axle and 4.3 gears.

I'll be bumper towing 12-13,000lbs with a 3600lb truck camper in the back. Likely less than 10,000 miles/year.

I had myself convinced to keep this to a leveling kit and 35's on 22's. Now I'm considering 37's. Someone talk me out of it please.

If I can stay with 35's I'll stick to the 350. the 4.3 gears in the 450 would be great for 37's.

Lets hear some feedback. I'm stepping out of a modded SRW 6.0 with 37's and 4.56.

37's with a slide in camper might get a little tippy. I would stick with the 35's.

With the 6140R 37" tires are nothing for 3.73's. There is a guy on here that runs 40" tires with 3.55's. Only reason I would get 4.30's would be 40"+ and towing heavy.

Thanks. 99% sure I'll stick with 35's and the F-350. I'm running a 6" lift and 37's on on my SRW right now with the slide in camper. The aftermarket airbags were a must. With the bags its fairly stable, I wouldn't want to drive down the highway without the bags aired up.
