I think what shef was saying is to run the tire size up to the max in the computer then trick the truck by changing the gear ratio in the computer. Simple online calculator says from factory tire to 37 would need to change back to a 3.85 gear ratio. Shows effective ratio of 3.27 with new tires.
Oh, I misunderstood. I thought he was saying about the spreadsheet to calculate the new tire size values in FORScan. Didnt know there was a setting for the gear ratio too.

I inquired about reprogramming at Sawgrass Ford in Sunrise FL the other day. They sell several Super Duties lifted with 38s. Their accessories department guy said the service department can reprogram mine when I get the 37s put on.
If you could when you get the new tires put on, let me know what process they used when they program for the 37s, if the speedo is accurate and if its successful without any lights. If the Ford dealer can actually do that, then I may look into that route as well.
