You can certainly get away with 35's if you want to retain a little more power and fuel economy. But as CSG asked, what gears did you order? That will play into the decision as well.

Here's a link to my old 1500 with a 6" lift on 35's with lots of pictures. 6" RCX lift with Bilsteins at 1.4" Installed on 35's

With the 3.92s the 37s would still turn alright but you would definitely get a little more oomph with 35s. I really like the way 37s look but I will be going with 35s myself.

I've got stocked gears in back ya- thank you Brandon for pics, think Ill go 35" yours looks good like that!

As far as cost it's kinda a tricky subject lol I had a 2013 with air and the air died because of cold claimate like what happend to a lot of peoples- then tried to get the limited with out air and they couldn't, so Chrysler is paying for labor and giving me the lift at cost.

This sounds like good service.
When you say stock gears... Is the 3.55 of 3.92 as both are stock

The 3.55 gears.

But got call today they pulled the limited into the shop and decided there was to much to change to remove the air suspension... So back to drawing boards to figure out what truck I'm gonna get now...

Probably just go sport now, I don't like the bumpers I have on my Laramie now, still gonna have them do lift though

If you do the coil over kit, you can remove the air suspension that way.
Talk to Leon (he is a member on here)
He had air suspension and had it removed

Dealer said they won't do the instal at all, called a lift shop local here same thing, I'm in northern Canada so no one wants to be the first in the area to do it is the problem I think
